Where do you live?!? I'd certainly like to know which public library gives such poor service to its patrons.
 Interlibrary loan is a standard service to patrons of the Chicago Public Library, and to most patrons of the various suburban libraries. Lots of college libraries have it as an option too, so, if you still live close to your alma mater, and you're in the alumni association, maybe you can use them.
