Have you ever wondered if a book is available at the library while searching Amazon.com? If so install Library Extension! As you browse for books and e-books on Amazon.com, Library Extension will check our catalog and display the availability of that title in the library. If the book or e-book is available you will know instantly and can place a hold on the title.

Library Extension is only available for use in Google's Chrome™ Browser. Don't use Chrome? Give it a try. It's simple to download and install. And it's free!

Download Chrome™ Browser

Now that you are using Chrome it's time to install Library Extension. Go to http://www.libraryextension.com. Read about Library Extension's features. When ready click the "Install the Library Extension Now" button and add it to Chrome. You will be notified that Library Extension has been added. The Library Extension icon is visible by the Favorites icon in Chrome and will only be visible when you are on a page that supports it.

It's that easy and now it is ready for use. Let's test this out in Amazon.com. Go to http://www.amazon.com. Search for any book title. When you have found what you are looking for in the list click on the item to view the item details. If this is the first time you are using Library Extension you need to add Wells County Public Library to your list of libraries in Library Extension. Since we are in the item details the Library Extension icon should be visible. Click on this icon and add our library. If available you can add other area libraries as well. When done close the Library Extension window and refresh your screen. On the right hand side of the screen you will see a section for the Wells County Public Library displaying availability information for the title.

Don't forget that you can use your Amazon purchases to help support our library. If we don't have the item you are looking for in our collection, or you wish to purchase the item rather than borrow it, click the Buy It Now button below and the Wells County Public Library will receive part of the proceeds from your Amazon purchase. An easy way to support the library!
