I don't know about the correlation between sales and loans in the UK but if it's like here I doubt it would brake the back of the libraries, besides they don't make Harry Potter available for lending, do they? I know, just an example for illustrative purposes. The reason they implemented the restrictions was the demand for soccer player Zlatan Ibrahimovic's autobiography.
