Automatically receive notifications when a book you are viewing on an online bookstore is available at a library near you, with this handy and unobtrusive extension.
Our libraries are a fundamental part of our society, but how many times have you bought a book online, and not even considered that you may be able to borrow the book for free at a library just around the corner?
