Libraries

I thought some of you might get a kick out of this Google maps mashup. It can display US public libraries on Google maps. You can check out where the libraries are near a particular zip code. Neither Sun City nor Sun City West libraries though are on the map.

It doesn't show academic libraries, so if one was looking for, say, University of Cincinnati library, one would have to ask Roberta - or a passing stranger.

Click on the title of this post to see the libraries near 85375, including Catherine's. Northwest Regional is also on the map, but as a central library. Has anybody been to Peoria (AZ) library?

By the way, you don't have to know the zip code, you can just move the map around until you get to the area in which you are interested.

Serena, I've been to the south of downtown Peoria Library but not the one shared with a High School at ~Deer Valley & 83rd Ave. They are replacing that one with a stand alone building at 91st & Lake Pleasant Rd in early 2009. Glendale's newest branch at 83rd & Bethany Home may also open as early as mid 2009.

I'll leave the libary hunting to my smart older sisters.
