Chrome App Lets You Search Amazon & Public Library Catalogs at the Same Time

Amazon and Goodreads are great! Both are easily searchable and provide great information on books. Amazon will send you a book (e-book or print book) with a click, or even let you listen to an e-audiobook. Goodreads, freely available with a sign up, has great reviews, lists, updates, and helps you keep track of what you’re reading. Both of these are missing one key component, though. They don’t tell you whether the book is available (for free!) at your public library.

Mobile App

Enter Library Extension, a Chrome app available from the Chrome Store, and from libraryextension.com. Click “Add to Chrome” and “add extension,” and choose public libraries from the neighborhood where you live or work (just start typing to see the libraries available). There’s also a list here.

And that’s it!  The next time you click on a book to BUY, maybe you’ll see one to check out instead!

And if you haven’t used a public library’s e-collection, most libraries require you to go in person, at least one time, to sign up and receive a card.  Otherwise, you can download books (e-books and e-audiobooks) from a library’s web site anywhere you have internet or network access.
