You’ve no doubt heard the old saying: “when the going gets tough, the tough go shopping!” That is precisely what bacteria do when they find themselves in deep trouble. They go shopping for useful genes that can help to get them out of the mess. There comes a time in the life of any organism or organization, when it has to try something completely different. In a sporting team, it has been called throwing away the game plan, and this is exactly what hypermutation involves. When a bacterial colony is in a critical situation — when survival is on the line — something very strange happens — the bacteria suddenly start mutating at an extraordinarily fast rate. In so doing, they are consulting the microbial lending library, hoping that they can come up with a mutation that might get them out of their crisis. Starving E. coli colonies (hyper-)mutate at a rate one thousand times greater than that which would normally be the case in a well-fed colony. You can even find certain hypermutators within a normal or well-fed colony, sitting there, ready to spring into a hypermutational mode at the first sign of serious stress. As Frank T. Vertosick so humorously put it: “these hypermutators are the Van Goghs of the microbial world — somewhat insane, but infinitely creative”.

A lending library is a place that stores information (books, magazines, articles, papers, etc.) and lends them out to people (e.g. members, students, citizens, etc.) 

"They are consulting the microbial lending library" can be rewritten as, "(It's as if) they are trying to consult and review all available information."
