Sorry I'm late to the discussion but I wanted to chime in as well. We just had our legal department review the legal implications of loaning digital copies of library books. They agreed that the library could actually create and/or obtain and maintain a digital (accessible) copy of their books and loan them out provided the book was being borrowed for the purposes of a class requirement and that the library "should use fully-accessible commercial sources if available" and that the library "should implement control mechanisms to prevent accessible work from being widely disseminated by a user." We will have our students sign an agreement to that effect. Then it's beyond our control.
