The Free Library of Philadelphia has a service that rents them the most current fiction and non-fiction books. The books appear rather quickly after publication, especially the political ones. I suspect that much of the work of preparing those books for loans is done by that service, but I don't really know. I never asked about the DVDs, but perhaps they are on the same service.

I am wondering if the same kind of service is available in Australia.
