Hi, I 'm just curious to why it takes so long for a library to obtain an e-book copy of a new book? Sometimes it seems that it is months before an e-book is available. Thank you, Charlene

I was told that I should make an appointment,or call before coming down for the E Gadget Gurus. If so, I would like to visit with a Guru Thursday, or tomorrow at 3:00 on both days. Thanks !
