You mean create Libraries inside other Libraries? No. I just tried and you can't do it.

Yeah, like branch libraries

My local municipal library has one main library and several branches, so the paradigm is not unknown, at least not down-under.

Maybe it's unknown in Seattle; as I recall banks in Lubbock TX can't have branches, maybe there's a similar ordinance in Seattle WA for libraries.

Aaah well, looks like it'll have to be a tree of folders with folder symlinks as leaves.

I believe the original responder did not understand the question fully.

This.

I thought that he meant create more folders within libraries, not libraries within libraries.
My mistake.
