We have a new reference database available.  ReferenceUSA is a great source for searching businesses and individuals in the United States.  With the U.S. Standard White Pages, you can search for individuals by name, address, or telephone number.  The U.S. Businesses search lets you search by company, personal name, city, state, or telephone number.  Customized searching allows you to find businesses by what they do or make, by location, even search for businesses in a certain area by how many employees or computers they have.

This is a great database if you’re looking for work, writing a business plan, researching sales leads, or just looking for a place to buy what you need.  Find it on our Electronic Resources page.

Are you curious about other cultures? Planning a trip? Always wanted to learn a language?

Meadville Public Library is proud to offer its patrons something new. Mango Languages is a language learning system that you can access at home. Practice a language and learn a little about the culture.

To get started, you’ll need your Meadville Library Card. Log on just like you would for Power Library databases by entering your Power Library code (PL + 4-digits) and then the 8-digit number from under your barcode. Create an account so you can keep track of your progress. Mango will check to make sure your system has the minimum requirements. To get the most out of your experience, you’ll want speakers and a microphone.
