OK, sometimes I am lazy.  At home, rather than look up a telephone number, I call 411 Information to ask for business or residential telephone numbers or addresses.  Sometimes, I will add as much as $20 to my monthly cell phone bill.  At the moment of opening the bill, I often kick myself.  I know better - there are other sources from which I could have obtained the information for free.  Please allow me to give you a tip to save both money and a guilt trip:  use AtoZdatabases, found on the library’s website, www.cclva.org , next time you need business or residential directory assistance.

AtoZdatabases is a premier job search, reference and mailing list database including 30 million business profiles and over 220 million residential listings.  The database is actually comprised of 10 unique databases, searchable in a single query.
