Are you in the market to buy a new car? Perhaps you are thinking of giving a new digital camera as a gift, but don’t know which model is best? Has your vacuum cleaner stopped working and you need to find a replacement? These are the types of questions we ask ourselves every day, but the answers aren’t always obvious.
St. Thomas Public Library is excited to introduce a new online database: “ConsumerReports.org“. This fantastic resource is accessible from the St. Thomas Public Library’s website (www.stthomaspubliclibrary.ca); all you need is your library card number! ConsumerReports.org offers complete access to rating information from the Consumer Reports Magazine, Buying Guides, and more. Results of product testing are made available by the Consumers Union, an expert, independent, nonprofit organization whose mission is to work for a fair, just, and safe marketplace for all consumers and to empower consumers to protect themselves.
All you need to do is type in your search keyword and check out the results. (You can search for nearly everything – from refrigerators to bacon!) Now it’s easy to find out which products will get you the most “bang for your buck!” Each search result provides you with a summary description of the item, an overall score, as well as ratings, brand reliability, specs, prices, and reviews. You have access to all the information you’ll need to help you find the item you are looking for FOR FREE!
It has never been easier to use online resources at the library. Give ConsumerReports.org a try today! For more information, visit stthomaspubliclibrary.ca. Have questions or comments? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
