Grande Bibliothèque marks 15 years

The Grande Bibliothèque, noted here as a formidable réussite québécoise, is marking its 15th anniversary, closed and locked down. According to Wikipedia, it opened on April 30, 2005, so I’m a little surprised Le Devoir waited till May 7 to run this story – or maybe the first date was the ceremonial opening only.

Has anyone here succeeded in borrowing ebooks from the big library? I’m not entirely inept with electronic devices and methods, but its requirements flummoxed me completely, and now I can’t pass by with my iPad and ask advice.
