Little Free Library question

Can anyone help me out? I can't find a link to ask the question on the Little Free Library website and I can't find the list view of local libraries anymore, only the map. The map is useless to me as all the little markers are on top of each other. And they are even worse on a cell phone than on a computer.

I used to be able to find a printed list (by state I think) on the website instead of just the map, but can't seem to figure out how to access it again. Can anyone help me with a URL or link? Thanks.

ETA: Also is there a link to contact them to let them know an address is wrong? LFL # 39123 says it is in ME (Maine) but the zip code is for New Orleans, per the USPS. I search for LFLs in Maine and found a whole bunch of markers in Maine and one on the map in Louisiana.

I used that PDF list all the time, but I don't think they keep it up anymore since they redid their map. The last version is from October 2015: https://littlefreelibrary.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/World-Map-Appendix-Update-10.1.15.pdf.

Have you visited librarything.com? You can type in any address and it will pull up any LFLs/book stores/libraries near you, thanks to volunteers who try to keep up with them all: https://www.librarything.com/local

I would use this link to let them know about a wrong address: https://littlefreelibrary.org/contact-us/

I wrote to them and asked for a printed list and they responded that they did not have one and to use the map.
They are developing a new phone app.
I'll send you a copy of their mail.

Let me see if I can find it and if it still works.

This was it, but it does not seem to be working any more. I think that LFL did not want anyone else scraping their information.
