There are so many resources out there now, including the internet, to educate ourselves, so there really is no excuse for not learning. When shopping for books on Amazon, buying can be so easy and convenient. But if you’re hard up and still wanting to boost your knowledge, whether it’s reading about finance, or learning how to knit, or just any kinds of novels, the books available on Amazon will cost you some money, and you have to wait for the books delivery.
There’s this handy chrome extension that will help you out and cut out the expenses of actually owning a book.
Library Extension lets you instantly see if the books you want can be found in your local library
With this awesome extension, you can see if any book and e-books you are interested in buying on Amazon or on Goodreads is already available in your library to borrow and then return.
While you have the option of owning the book and placing it proudly on your shelf (always a feeling I enjoy), you now at least have the option of considering using your local library, and saving your money!
This convenient and unobtrusive extension can save you a lot of time, avoiding the need to trawl through library websites or shelves. We often forget the option that libraries give us in this digital age, and I would argue they are still a precious resource; to have the option to learn for free and to access thousands of other people’s stories, knowledge and advice.
If you do decide to use it you can add your favourite local libraries and pick the book up that same day if you like, making delivery even faster than amazon, and keeping your local library going for future generations to enjoy.
Start browsing on Amazon or Goodreads and keep the Extension active
Put this in your to-do list, and you’ll remember to install it!
Just browse for the book you want and click on the extension in your browser address bar to find out if it’s available in any libraries close to you.
The extension covers local libraries in the Unites States, Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, New Zealand and Cayman Islands.
So if you’re looking for a cheaper option, then definitely consider giving this a try. Just make sure you return your books on time!
