The university happens to be located in my town, and the town and the university have an agreement that town residents can get borrower's cards from the university library.

Are you outside the US? (I ask because "What the bleep do we know" is available in video rental stores in my state) In the US you can do InterLibrary Loan (ILL), where your local library essentially borrows a book from another library (i.e. a university library). This allows you to borrow books from the university library without being a student or having a card. It takes a little time - your library requests the book and then the university library needs to send it. In my state there is a van that drives between the libraries, and my library gets ILL books in on Wednesdays. So it can take a couple of weeks to get the books, but at least you can get them (at no cost). I find that walking through the stacks helps me decide which books I want to take home. So if I didn't have a university card, I could then take the list of books back to my library and ask them to ILL them. Depending on the size and friendliness of your local and university libraries, you might get chummy enough with the players so that they would let you "transport" the books from the university to your library (in essence taking the books out of the university library on your local library's "card"). This would be essential if you are impatient like I am.

That said, it would probably be helpful for you to try to figure out *why* books give you comfort. I know that figuring that out was a turning point for me.
