We are all looking forward to the day when the library is open again. You might try using the World Catalog to determine if a copy of the book you are interested in might be at accessible at a library near you. You can find the world catalog on the FamilySearch Catalog home page. The following images show the FamilySearch Catalog home page, the World Catalog home page, and the partial results for a search for a book entitled "The Joseph Eggleston Family".
Or, if your local public library is open you could try to acquire the book through inter-library loan. However, our local library has only limited option openings at this time and is not accepting inter-library loan requests. I have acquired access to many books and microfilms (from state archives or state libraries not from Church of Jesus Christ microfilm collection) in this way in the past -
I'm looking for access to this listing I found in the library. I would pay for a copy or come there to view microfilm or whatever is the best way to read it. Please advise

Since this was tacked onto an existing discussion, it seems to have not been addressed in a timely fashion. We are sorry you have had to wait so long for a response. The catalog entry for the title: Landrum-Lyon-Rippetoe connection indicates that the library has a physical copy of the book on the 3rd floor. It has not yet been digitized.
When you want to look at a book that is not yet digitized, you have a few options:
You can click the link for WorldCat right there on the catalog page to see if a public library as a copy. If so, you can visit the public library or request an Inter-library loan. This particular book only seems to be in the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, and they do not do inter-library loans. So, let's look at other options.
You can use the Family History Library Record Lookup Service. The link below gives details and has a link to the lookup request form.
You can submit a request for the library to digitize the book. The link below explains what information to include in your request to [email protected]
Best wishes in your search for records of your ancestors.
