Consumer Reports: unbiased reviews on things you use, free with your Plum Creek library card.

Consumer Reports Database

My husband and I are remodeling our kitchen, so I have been shopping online for appliances. I don’t know if you have done this lately, but there are a lot of choices.

My husband suggested we look at Consumer Reports to see which ones are highly rated. I remembered that the Consumer Reports database is available through the library website for free. I looked up the appliances I was shopping for and found which ones were highly rated. It made my life so much easier, and don’t we all need that. If you have a Marshall Lyon County library card, you can look up all the things that Consumer Reports tests. The Used Cars to Avoid list has always been compelling to our family.

To access the database, go to the library’s website and click on Services, then scroll down and click on Databases, then scroll down and click on Consumer Reports. You can also click here to open Consumer Reports in a new tab. The next step will be to put in your library card number in the Patron box: all the numbers with no spaces. (No username or PIN, yeah!)  Type what you are looking for in the search box and have fun!
