Not your grandfather's library system

"North of Toronto, the 140,000 men, women, and children who are members of Vaughan Public Libraries have become virtual pioneers. The city's eight libraries - seven of the traditional books-on-shelves variety and one e-library - are the first in Canada to offer downloadable videos and television programs through the Internet. Library patrons can access the material from anywhere in the world, any time of day, and they don't have to worry about any fines for late returns: The material simply expires from their computer when the loan period ends" - Bell Globemedia
