New App from LibraryThing: Local Books

Breaking News: “Local Books resembles popular dining apps like LocalEats or UrbanSpoon—but for book lovers. It shows you local bookstores, libraries and bookish events wherever you are or plan to be.”

Features. Features include:

Search for venues (bookstores and libraries) as well as events near your current location using the iPhone’s built-in location features.

Search for venues and events at any location or by name.

Venues can be sorted by distance, name, or type.

Venues are color coded, following the maps on LibraryThing Local (colors correspond to the colors used on maps in LibraryThing Local).

Each venue has a detail page with a map. Tap it to jump to the iPhone Maps application.

Venues often sport a description, clickable website and phone number links, events, and a photo.

You can favorite locations and events, and there’s a “Favorites” list where you can find them.(1)

“How You Can Help:
Even with 51,000 venues listed, not every bookstore and library is in LibraryThing. If you know of one that’s not in there, go ahead and add it.”
