I see Bev answered your question on my blog. I also started writing to a long-lost 1st cousin who is in jail. I want to know how you get a Brooklyn Library Card if you don't live there. You have to live in my locality to get a library card. I would love to have more books to choose from than what is offered here. Tiny little selection.

I should make a resolution like yours - to borrow more books from the library vs. purchasing them.
