Don't see your favorite bookstore or library? Want to add an event? Local Books is based on information that LibraryThing members have added to LibraryThing Local. Any LibraryThing member can add a venue or an event to LibraryThing Local, and once added, it will also show up in Local Books.

Please check to make sure the venue or event doesn't already exist before adding it.
