Our state has a digital library, and I'm assuming other states do too; we're not usually on the cutting edge of things, lol. I recently used it and was really surprised at the huge array of things available. Thousands of e books and audiobooks, as well as music cd's and some movies. You check the items out for a week or two, just like at the regular library, and can reserve things that are not currently available (I guess they have a limited number of licensing keys for each item). I'm a huge fan of audio books, so that's what I mainly focused on. I like to download them to my iPod and listen while driving, doing housework and crafts, etc. Check it out if you haven't already.
