    Although not quilt related, directly it could be indirectly.

    I know many of you use your local library for quilting books instead of buying them. I do this also. I was surfing the net looking for a book and ran across this website. http://www.worldcat.org/ you put the title of the book you are looking for in the search and then it will find that book in your nearest library according to your zip code. I found several books that my "local" library doesn't carry, but I can go to the next town over and check them out for free using my local library card because they have a Co-op. Way easier than having to check each libraries catalog one at a time.

    some libraries have inter loan desks that can order the book for you and you can pick it up at your local one without having to go to another town. I love libraries!!!!

    also if you have lots of paperbacks and want more but don't want to buy them, you can swap them for postage costs. www.paperbackswap.com does that. post a minimum amount of books and earn points for each book swapped. just a thought.
