Was thinking to decentralized the library, allowing the books to stay
where they lay until they are requested again. Guess if someone wants to
give them up early they could deliver them to a librarian who would take
responsibility to send out to the next borrower.

Hadn't really considered that. Maybe a stern rebuke on the website for
patrons who loose library books? Seriously, at some point the borrower
needs to accept responsibility. Maybe let them deliver to a librarian if
they don't want it any more.  I nominate Ike. He can keep em next to the
computer museum. :) guess anyone(s) willing could keep the books.
