Mifflin County Library adds ‘The USA’ to collection

LEWISTOWN — The Mifflin County Library recently added “AtoZ the USA” to its online reference offerings. This new library database is an unmatched resource for information about the people, culture, geography, government, history, indigenous peoples, food and symbols of the U.S. states and the country.

“Information about the USA and U.S. states is very popular at the library, but in the past, we’ve never been able to offer such a comprehensive one-stop resource that answers so many questions. It’s the equivalent of 20 large reference books, so we’re very excited to offer it to our patrons,” Kelly Rodenbaugh, Youth Services Manager at Mifflin County Library, said.

Anyone may access “AtoZ the USA” using the library’s computers, or from anywhere in the world from the library’s portal at www.mifcolib.org with their valid Mifflin County library card. The database covers 110 topics for each state, territory, and the District of Columbia, and 118 topics for the country.

The program was designed for students, educators, and anyone who wants to develop an in-depth understanding of the USA.

Offering “AtoZ the USA,” a product of World Trade Press, the Global Knowledge Company, is an example of the Mifflin County Library’s mission to increase its coverage of topics that are of interest to patrons young and old.
