I did not have such good luck.

I entered "library" and my home zip code, and the library closest to my home did NOT turn up on the first two pages. (Normally I give up after 1 page.)

I tried "hiking" --for this search, all I got was retail stores, not nfp clubs like Columbus Outdoor Pursuits and Buckeye Trail Association. I tried "mushrooming" and I got stuff about oh, various things mushrooming.

I think this may be strong on retail stores, weak on the other stuff that makes the world go round.

Do we have any business opportunities with Google for our library location data?
