Yes you do : ) I've started using opendb (http://opendb.sourceforge.net/) to catalogue my books, and it seems to be a good way to implement a 'distributed library' in that it supports multiple people, either as a 'borrower' (allowed to look at the book lists and submit a request to borrow a book) or as a 'normal' user (allowed to add books in to the system for people to borrow). Of course, we would still need a process for people to actually get hold of the books. I guess that would probably involve bringing them to a meeting. It's implemented in PHP with a MySQL backend.
