fyi, here is a post from "Librarian in Black" blog

about the Denver Public Library.

In mid-March, the Denver Public Library will become the first library to
offer downloadable video content through Overdrive's new video
collection. The content right now consists of documentaries, self-help
titles, and travelogues. The real future of downloadable video is in
the mass market entertainment DVDs. I don't think we'll see a lot of
libraries jumping on this bandwagon until that happens"
