NY Public Library only for New Yorkers
I live in Germany and asked the New York Public Library if it is possible to borrow ebooks from them to read on my Sony reader.
Here is their today's reply:
"Sorry, but non-residents who do not qualify for an NYPL library card will not be able to access our ebooks on any device including Sony E-readers.
As of July 2009 the NYPL is no longer offerring non-resident paid cards. NYPL library cards are only available to person who live, work, attend school or pays property taxes in New York State.
We are sorry for the inconvenience."
