Description from store 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? If you are a student, bookworm, occasional reader, parent of small children or try-before-you-buy-er and you buy books from one of the three major UK online book retailers, then this extension is for you. Features: * See libraries that stock a book (ordered by distance from your current location), get directions through Google maps and visit their website to reserve. * Unobtrusive toolbar design that only displays on relevant pages. * Provide a location or allow chrome to provide one for you. * Read more, spend less. Permissions: * Storage – required to store your preferences. * Location – required to filter libraries by shortest distance to you. * Various websites - required in order to find and lookup the isbn to find a book in your local library. * api.ourlib.co.uk - required in order to communicate with our online lookup service.
