I was going by my unreliable memory of a youtube video from a few years ago
where the
rendering chain was explained.  It was very complex and, at least back
then, even minor changes
could cause it to go a lot slower.  It could have changed since then (there
were many transformation
stages) or I could be misremembering.

Me too.  It may have "library" in the name but books are not its primary
focus.  And "library" was only
included in the name because somebody thought that "library" meant
"lending" because all the
libraries he/she visited were lending libraries not reference libraries.

No games in my local library, but they do have CDs and DVDs.  And also
computers for accessing the
Internet.  A look at the online catalogue for my local toy library does not
show any games or books.

Another point.  My local library does not charge for books, but does charge
for CDs and DVDs.  The
toy library charges for all the toys, so it's more of a toy rental shop.
Of course, there may be some
book libraries that charge and some toy libraries that do not.
