Free downloading and copying of library e-books

Susan Gilmore, King County library lets you copy its e-books, The Seattle Times, January 31, 2005. Excerpt: 'For audio-book addicts, the King County Library System has something for you and you don't even have to set foot in a library. Last November, the county library became the first in the nation to allow people to download audio "e-books" to home computers. An e-book can be downloaded from the library's Web site onto a computer and either burned to a CD or transferred to an MP3 player. For free.' (Thanks to LIS News.)
