Shows nothing, fix this app, please!

Does not show libraries from another state


Does not show libraries from another state, even though some are closer than those listed in the current state. Otherwise, appears to work as claimed.



It does not display local public libraries that are close by, but instead suggests libraries that are far away, in other suburbs or cities. It does not even sort its lists properly. Selecting a distance sort in the library list view results in a scrambled mess, apparently random. Very disappointing. And fully unusable in this state.
