We've added a new feature to the library's catalogue to make it easy. When you click on a title in the library catalogue, take a good look at that Item Details window. Near the bottom you'll find a "Buy from Amazon.com" button. Click it, and you'll be taken directly to that book in Amazon. From there, you have all the usual Amazon options. Use the library's copy or get your own: the choice is yours!
