Your library card can save you money. Why subscribe to Consumer Reports magazine when you can share the library’s subscription – and even access it from home!?
All you need is your library card and a computer with internet access.
Here are a few reasons why someone might need to access Consumer Reports:
You and your spouse are talking about updating your kitchen appliances to more energy-efficient ones. Consumer Reports can help you identify which brands sell “green” products and how they stack up against the competition in price and quality.
Your wife wants you home more often. So, you decide your living room should have a TV on par with your favorite sports bar. Read about HDTVs in Consumer Reports before you go shopping. The knowledge you gain will help get you in and out of the store quickly before your wife changes her mind.
Your daughter is going off to college and you want her to have reliable transportation. Consumer Reports publishes credible reviews on the most reliable used cars – or new cars if you’re feeling especially generous.
It’s time for your business to update its computer technology. From iPads to desktop computers and everything in between, Consumer Reports has you covered.
Find reviews of home and garden and baby products too.
Try out the online version of Consumer Reports and see for yourself how easy it is to use. Go to the Digital Branch Library, www.tscpl.org. And, click on Research.
