Libraries are not free. They are, at best, pre-paid by local taxes. The build, maintenance and staff yes. In some countries publishers have to give free (yes 100% free, no cost etc..) copies of books to libraries.
You could start by not saying that public libraries are free.
may want to check my comments. I NEVER mentioned "public libraries" - there are many types of libraries (company, private, academic,etc..) as well as public.

Currently the worlds largest off shore wind farm (London Array, which should generate enough energy to power a quarter of the homes in Greater London) is being constructed and the company who was initial involved in the London Array (Farm Energy) is also involved in this project.
According to the report "....it could be powering more than 1,000,000 homes by 2018", which would be enough to power all the homes in Devon (as well as some in Cornwall)."
