BiblioFile

Team Name: 
BiblioFile

BiblioFile seeks to increase social connection through reading- like Tinder for book lovers. It uses public library open data to notify uses of other people with similar reading interests and to connect people with the books that they love. Users can connect with other people who like to read- regardless of location- both online and in the real world. Books can be searched for and requested through the One Card Network - and if it is not available they can request that it is purchased by their local library.
