WorldCat is an interesting app - type in an author or book title and it tells you the libraries where relevant books (video and audio versions as well) are held, including public libraries in the UK.

WorldCat Mobile -- Search libraries from your phone []

It links into Google Maps, and using the GPS gives the distance to the various libraries.

I typed in "Oliver Twist" and it told me that there is a copy of the BBC TV production at Oxford University 97 miles away, as well as copies in Holland and other places.
