The multiple waiting lists is why I have several as well, and the fact that there are some books only one of the libraries will carry.
You should see the main library in downtown Seattle. It's quite the tourist attraction. Check here for some pics and here for a 20 minute virtual tour.

It's huge! But then, I guess it does service way more patrons than my little library.

I know. Once you start looking at this, you want them all. I was really into Tubemonkey's "CleveNet" thing, too, after I found out that it's from Ohio. At least for me, Ohio and Texas are quite similar..

Brooklyn might be a bit boring, but we have the coolest door:

Brooklyn is OK..

WOW! That is the best door!

and since you mention Brooklyn and this thread is about Amazon Prime....
thanks to my Amazon Prime membership I've been watching 'American Experience New York season 1' - http://www.amazon.com/New-York-Count...ience+new+york

free of course. What an excellent series!

Thanks a lot, xendula. I'll have a look now.

Austin, Brooklyn, or Philadelphia.. Difficult..
If you are over 65 the Philadelphia card is free.

I am able to get the Philadelphia library card for free though I think I am going to also sign up for a Brooklyn card.

One added benefit for Prime Members just started in the last 10 days is free ONE DAY delivery on all purchases. I purchased two items and received them the NEXT DAY. I don't believe Amazon has announced this yet.
That is, free ONE DAY delivery on all purchases for Prime members except those living in Alaska and Hawaii. We merely get free standard shipping -- not even free TWO DAY, yet we pay the same annual Prime membership fees as residents of the Lower 48. I can see why Amazon doesn't want to subsidize shipping costs to AK (although USPS costs to AK and HI are no higher than between the two coasts in the L 48), but I don't see why I don't get a commensurate Prime membership discount. That means we are subsidizing the rest of you, who are getting free one or two day shipping on everything for the same annual fee.

Yep, I occasionally ship to my son in AK and have to pay the shipping charges.
