eBooks [help a newbie out] Library?
Is there some kind of Library where one can go to "check out" eBooks instead of purchasing them?
For instance, I can go to the local library and check out a hard copy of a James Patterson book. Is there a way that I could check it out in an electronic version, instead? I don't want to own it, just read it on my STREAK (mini-tablet) and then delete it when I'm done.
Is there a service like this for eBooks? Some kind of public library of downloadable books?

Thanks everyone! I've downloaded Overdrive and got it hooked up to my library card. That's kind of cool, if you think about it. I'm reading James Patterson on my phone, now. With its backlit screen, I can lie in bed and read while my wife sleeps and I won't wake her with the turning of the pages, or the shuffling of the book in my hands if it gets heavy, or even having to keep a light on.
