See Library Titles on Amazon.com

Library extension-4a

Use Library Extension in Google Chrome to view library titles through Amazon.com

If you have ever wanted to see whether a book is available at your local library while you’re browsing on Amazon.com, the  Library Extension is for you!

As you browse book and e-book titles on Amazon, the Library Extension checks your library’s online catalog and displays the availability of that title on the same page. If the book is available at your library, you’ll know instantly.  There’s a quick, convenient link to access and reserve the title at your library.

The Library Extension is free, but currently only works with the Google Chrome web browser.  You will see availability on the same page as Amazon’s offers and reviews.  It’s free and no sign-up is required.  Install the Library Extension from www.libraryextension.com.
