Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The swedish public library system gives acces to lots of books. Each library does not have all books, but you can order books from the whole system and get a notification when the book gets to your library.

This system encompasses the whole of Sweden (lots of rural areas) and while built on a backbone of traditional libraries, at least one in each kommun (municipality and surrounding area, closest translated with county) it also has bookbuses and other ways of reaching the population.

I do not see libraries as a thing of the past. Books are a very popular format.
