Or can you get a CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R, or DVD-RW and burn it on to that at the library? Or is the computer at the library not capable of burning CD/DVDs?

The storage system of the BF series (.rfa files) are already based on the compression algorythms used in the .zip format, so compressing them will get you very little, if any, advantage, and indeed may end up making the file sizes larger due to the overhead required by the zip file. However having said that, the .zip archiving format is designed to span archives across disks, so it is posssible that an archiver may allow you to fit a larger than 250Mb file on to your disks by spreadig the data across both disks.
