I love this little piece of technology- it lets you look up a book with an ISBN number in your local public library system. For example, see a book you must have on Amazon? this little program can check your library's online catalog to see if it is available.
That's pretty darn close Our old library was a little building 8 feet by 10 feet-that sat in a lady's front yard--if you wanted a book, you hoped Miss Dot was home, not out back in veggie garden or gone to church!
Gosh! I know of places like that in Aussie - mainly post offices in rural areas and of a bygone era. It's great to hear of them elsewhere. I think they're iconic and a blast really. Miss Dot. The stuff of a children's book!
