Anyone else use interlibrary loans very much?

I use it all the time. I can do a search for a book online, and it tells me what libraries have the book. I can opt to drive to a different library than my own and pick it up, or I can have it sent to my local library for pick-up.

If I had to guess, I'd say something like 3/4 of the books I borrow come from a library other than my own via interlibrary loan.

Do you live someplace that has a library that typically has everything you're after? I think you live in a much bigger city than I do, and may even have branches to your library. I'm in a small town, and we recently tripled the size of our library as we were still using the one built back in the very early 1900's which was a gift to the town by a couple of sisters to be built in honor of their father.
