Hehe, funny. Very reminiscent of Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Walk thyself to the "reader's Services" Desk of thy library. )Or call them -
they are in the phone book...and may even be on the internet.) Say these
magic words, "I would like to ILL a book. How do i go about it?"
The whacked out, insane person behind the desk, who dresses funny, may well
have a terrible hairpiece and a strange look in his/her eye, will show you
the process. You will follow the directions. The books will come in from a
library far, far away from your town, and you can ponder over the
inscription "Pensacola Town Library," wondering why on earth the good people
of Pensacola would have this book in their library, but not you in yours.
You will read the book. You will return it to your library and you will
repeat the steps...endlessly. Until the people at the front desk and
Reader's Services know you by voice on the phone and refer to you as "The
law firm of Friedman and Lawler," (inserting yours and your partner's -
should you have one - names.) And you overdue fines will support the
building of a new library one day, with inadequate handicapped parking.
