I've just had a reply from the Library of Brooklyn when I asked
for clarification of their non-residents' card -
"Non-resident is anyone not
living outside of NYS, and out of state
residents have full access to all of our ebook, and online research
Thank you for your inquiry.
I bolded the NOT here as surely that's a mistake?
So - I've asked them for clarification again.
I think they will blacklist me.
