2,264 books is far from a "big bang." Considering what is on a library's shelves it is a mere pittance. I borrow eBooks when I can from the Henn County Library. The number of books offered isn't the problem. The problem is the type of ebooks that are available. If you like bodice rippers and authors such as Louis L'Amour you're in luck, but if you want to read prize-winning general fiction you're in for a long wait.

This is really ridiculous. Why weren't my contents posted?

e-books are good but the waiting list is so long because people do not return them. You can keep them for 21 days. They need a button after you have read the book on your device to return to library. On Kindle you have to go online to manage your kindle and manually return book a step people are not doing.

Another trick people use to hang onto a book past the limit is to leave their wifi turned off.

If u really want to read prize-winning fiction, shell out a few bucks and buy your own copy at a bookstore. The money you pay in your taxes really goes to internet access to those who otherwise couldn't afford it
