LIBRARY PROWLING FOR CALVINO

A fair number of readers use libraries to satisfy their reading habit. The question is whether they can find a copy of The Risk of Infidelity Index or Spirit House in a library near where they live.

 

This has usually been a hit and miss affair. Now there is a website that let’s you answer that question: http://www.worldcat.org/ before you go out the door to hunt down a book on library shelves.

 

You’ll be able to track down the latest Vincent Calvino crime novel in the library close to where you live and work. A cool feature about this website is that it also tracks libraries internationally.

 

As a reference tool for library users, this website gets an “A.”

 

A tip of the hat to my friend Ronald Lieberman (Toronto, Ontario) for bringing this website to my attention.
