This Browser Extension Shows if Books on Amazon Are at Your Local Library

Photography News

Want to learn photography from some good ol’ physical books? Before clicking the Checkout button on Amazon or other online bookstores, you might want to check out the handy browser extension called Library Extension. It adds a box to Amazon book listings to show you if that book is available for free at your local library.

The extension is available for Chrome and Firefox, and both versions have near-perfect reviews.

Once it’s installed, you’ll see the new Library Extension icon in your toolbar. Click it to choose which libraries the tool should look for books in.

Now you’re all set. Whenever you view a book’s listing on Amazon, a new box will appear on the right side above the buying options box. This will show you how many copies of that book each of your chosen libraries have on file and how many are available to borrow. Clicking the link takes you to the library’s book listing.

In addition to Amazon, the extension also works on other bookseller websites such as Barnes & Noble and Goodreads.

Best of all, Library Extension is completely free to use (it’s supported by donations), and you don’t even need to set up an account for it. Head on over to the website if you’d like to get started.
