Downloading seem to me to be concerned with distribution. As I understand it from for example

it is the copying that is problematic and not the possession.

Sorry, I'm pretty sure they are working in partnership with the libraries that participate. You are (the library is) allowed to make a copy of a copyright work for archival purposes, which this certainly qualifies as. I think your "hate" of Google is coloring your interpertation of the facts.

The libraries' permission to archive a work does not extend to giving the work to Google, who then uses it to redistribute (albeit in small pieces) and to drive their advertising engine. The facts here are as plain as can be, and aren't being subject to colorful interpretation.

The library gives the book to Google. Google copies it, and uses it for commercial purposes. That's illegal.

Many, many people agree, and have thus forced Google to react to modify the program in an attempt to mollify their critics. None of their modifications undo the original illegal act, however.
