We wanted something fast, a simple list view that just said "here's the closest libraries to you" from where ever you're at.
Luckily LFL data is public (yay!) in the form of a PDF, so we were able to get the data into a format where we could build this up:
Little Library Locator
It can use your location, or an alternate zip code, and show the closest libraries with their addresses linked to google maps so you can get directions and go leave some books. It's been a lot of fun and helped ME even find some more libraries in Wichita, where I swear I had seen them all but our fair city is up to like 20 now. I have a permanent "car library" with me at all times these days, a milk crate full of books with little free library labels on them ready to stock empty libraries.
Happy reading, random book lovers!
