LibrarySearch is a Chrome/Safari browser extension that adds a right-click (context menu) option to search your local public library for the selected text.

You can search the title of a book in your Amazon Wish List, the New York Times Beset-Sellers list, Goodreads and literally any web site. Set your local library from preferences.
- Only listed libraries are supported at the moment (the ones around San Francisco). If you don't see your local library, email me () and I'll add it to the next revision. Eventually I'd like to support a preference to let savvy users enter their library web site's search URL manually.
- After installing LibrarySearch, the highlighed text won't be displayed in the right-click menu until you restart Safari (Safari version only).
