You might want to talk to your librarian in the future. They have something called an interlibrary loan. If it's not available in your city library, it might be available in another city that's connected with your system. They put in an order for you. The other library ships it to yours, and you pick it up. You return it 30 days later and it goes back to them. Sometimes it can take 2 or 3 months for them to get it in for you. It depends. Some people might have put a hold on it ahead of you. This is mostly for popular books and best sellers. If it's available in a city nearby, it's worth a road trip to pick it up in person. You can use your local library card if the other library is in the system. My library has a computer system that tells me where the book is available in what city and you can put a hold on it right from the screen.
A little trivia: The first person to start a public lending library was Benjamin Franklin.
