[kwlug-help] Looking for a computer book store.

The book I'm looking for is "Programming Python", preferably the 3rd edition, by Mark Lutz. There are other python books, but this one is the second in a two volume set and I'm reading the first volume now. I have not found any other books that cover the subject in as much detail.
How do I find out if it is in the KWLUG library?
Amazon says it will ship in 1 to 4 *months*, chapters says 3-5 weeks. I might need it sooner than that. I'm not 100% sure I'll even need it, but if I do, I don't want to have to tell the customer to wait 5 weeks. :)
The library is checking if they can get it from some other library. I'm waiting to hear back.
