Hi BO: Here's a little known fact about your local library that may of help to you (at least it wasn't known by me for MANY years, mainly because I never thought to ask - and no one at any of our local libraries volunteered the information) ...that has proved to be VERY useful....

Our local library didn't have a book of Western Songs by Jim Bob Tinsley (For A Cowboy Has To Sing) that I had learned they REQUESTED it from another library in a another part of the state or even a different state (they didn't say which) and in about 2/3 weeks - I got a call to pick it up.

So apparently, it the book exists anywhere in the libary system, it can be SPECIAL ORDERED - FREE OF CHARGE.
