Of all the network tools we featured in the past year, Library Extension stood out as the clear reader favorite. We're also fans of this simple chrome extension that makes it easy to find and request books at your local public library. Best of all, Library Extension is continuing to grow, allowing readers to find books at libraries across the United States, Canada, and Australia. Library Extension also makes it easy for users to request new or additional libraries.
Library Extension detects when you're viewing a book or ebook on a site like Amazon or Goodreads and adds a box showing the availability of that item in your local library. If you have access to more than one local library, it is able to check all of them. When an item is available from your library, Library Extension will also include a link allowing you to reserve it. Library Extension currently integrates with over 4,000 local libraries. Users can request support for additional libraries with a simple contact form. Users do not need to register for any additional accounts to use Library Extension. Currently, Library Extension is available for Google Chrome. A version for Mozilla Firefox is under development.
