Stacy 1) if you can afford it, some libraries that are outside your 'tax' region will allow you to join for the equivalent of the taxes you aren't paying, 2) this sounds like a good issue to bring up at your local "City Hall" or its equivalent.
they don't participate in the county library system
This might seem like a bizarre suggestion, but one of my pet peeves is the apparent drop in the quality of driving in my community. I'd like to see a driver trainer computer in my library for anyone to use. It would help people assess their abilities and remind them of things they've gotten sloppy about. With the large number of seniors in my community, it is becoming a larger issue, as they've got the highest accident rate after the beginner driver. I also agree with Raven's suggestions about giving people access to professional journals and online training courses.
