: : Depends, we have publically funded Libraries (theres a big public service element in Library work- liekwise local authority work), but there's private and university libraries out there...

: Go for the latter. Gaurantee they'll have better books!

Hmm - yeah if you want something on the dynamics of nuclear cooling systems then yeah possibly/ probably, if however you want a book for your kid (who is remember the future of this world in some peoples minds) then a I'd say a public library is gonna beat you hands down. The of course there's the spoken word, libraries tend to have quite extensive stocks, in many langauges, in a wide variety of fields (comedy to novels to learning the guitar) so another winner there for public libraries methinks. Other winner points:

*. free internet connection - a _whole_ world of public libraries to tap into

*. they're free, more abundant and more accomodating
