It doesn't, that's not what I said. I said that when it gets borrowed, money goes to the artist. So it's not the same as downloading where NOTHING goes to the artist. Still not saying it's right to do so, so I'm not disagreeing here.

I'd assume part of the money does go towards paying the royalties for borrowing, hence why they charge for it. I don't know for sure, I've never worked for a library. But it does make sense. Otherwise what musician would be happy about libraries lending out their works without receiving any payment?
Hi, I'm Andrew.
