Have we hit all major US metropolitan areas? Cleveland/NE Ohio is impressive.

Do we have anyone from Toronto, Montreal or Quebec? So far Canada seems to have good inventories.

Six of those use the same online library, though, and it's pretty small.

So glad I stopped at the NYPL on vacation in 2005!
Hah! I couldn't get the numbers on my public or uni library but ... hell yeah! my library has more books than the NYPL 20748 no duplicate files.

I don't know if that's including the King County Library System as well, but they've got a huge selection as well. Both the Seattle library system and the KCLS are hands down the best libraries I've ever used, one of the things I love about living here. It's also one of the main reasons I didn't want to get a Kindle.

No, the Seattle numbers are ONLY for Seattle. The systems are seperate. I cannot take eBooks from the King County library as a Seattle resident.

King County's numbers:
245 - ePub
2785 - MobiPocket
3895 - PDF
Less than one third of Seattle's collection of eBooks.

So far Cleveland wins by about 1000 titles with Seattle a close second.

None in my local library, and none in the Paris area as far as I know. But these things change fast...

Yep, over sixteen thousand pdfs. Shame they don't look too good on my Sony 505, which is why I tend to only read epubs.

Even with such a large selection, for which I am grateful, I've pretty much read everything I want to read from there and look on those lucky people with an NYPL, Clevnet, Salt Lake County, or Seattle library card with envy.

I have 3 sites that I have access to, 5000+ audio on two of them 2500+ on the other. I have a little envy of the Navy site, they have close to 21,000 audio books at last check. I hope our sailors and marines are enjoying them and that they help them keep their sainity

I just realized that Overdrive is based in Cleveland.

Could that be the reason Clevnet has the most ebooks available?
