Default .NET DataGrid Column Headers

I have a datagrid that I bind to a dataview at runtime. I know how to set the column's headertext property. What I'm wondering is if it's possible to have a column header span multiple rows? I would like to make a main header that is over two subheaders. I'll try to show below, and hopefully the formatting will hold up:

    Library Name
Book | Checked Out

"Library Name" would be the column that spans over the sub rows "Book" and "Checked Out".

You would have to make a custom DataGrid control to implement. Look on the web to see if there is a prebuilt one.
