If you hear someone talking about their local library being free, here are some points by Carrie Straka in a post at the Tame the Web blog.

Did you know there's a World eBook Fair going on now? It lasts until August 4th. I know some of my readers have Kindles or Nooks. You may want to check this out. They claim there is free access to 6.5 billion (yes, billion) books through Project Gutenberg and Internet Archive for the next month. I think we'll have to check it out.
