New York Times article about libraries and ebooks
There's some interesting stuff in here. I was especially interested to see that some publishers won't let libraries loan ebooks.
(BTW, you may have to register to see the article.)

"For now, the expansion will be slowed in part because, with few exceptions, e-books in public libraries cannot be read on Amazon’s Kindle, currently the best-selling electronic reader, or on Apple’s iPhone, which has rapidly become a popular device for reading e-books. Most library editions are compatible with the Sony Reader, computers and a handful of other mobile devices."
That is a pretty compelling selling point for Sony, I am surprised they don't have an advertising campaign on the back of it.
