- Nov 14, 2004Welcome Katya,
Well, you can always try Inter-Library Loan (ILL for short), at my local
libray it runs about $2 or so to have them run the process through.
Otherwise do you have a unviersity or college near? You might be able to get
a library card to their library (I think my local university charges $35 to
get a library card) and get books that the public libraries doesn't carry.
If your local group has a e group list you can always ask and see if anyone
has some of the books you want to look at and see about viewing the books at
their place. I have found it better to be able to look at a book before
deciding that I need that one on my own shelves.
