Oh, I agree that Netflix is more convenient and well-stocked, and for many people, that’s worth paying for. But I go to the library regularly anyway, so there’s no time penalty: I just swing through the Reserves section on my way to the checkout desk and grab my DVDs.

I used the Netflix analogy because it was an intriguing way to describe the library’s service. Both systems let you order digital media online, then deliver it in a physical format. —David
