Is your toilet running when nobody’s there?
Do you need to replace a light switch?
Would a gazebo make your back yard a happier place?
The Fresno County Public Library has a database that has the answer for you—the Home Improvement Resource Center, as close as the library website, and it’s FREE!
What You’ll Find
· Explanations of how things work
· Lists of materials
· The causes of everyday problems
Easy-to-understand articles on:
· Outdoor projects
· Feng shui
There’s a glossary of terms you might not know. It’s like a giant encyclopedia of how to fix what is wrong and add those improvements you always wanted to make.
Seeing is learning
Sometimes it's easier to learn by seeing how something is done instead of reading about it. Home Improvement Resource Center includes pictures, videos, and animations that demonstrate basic home projects and repairs.
You can even print out a Homeowner’s Journal, which can be used to record:
· What work is done on your home
· When it was done
· Who did the work
· How much it cost
It’s a way to keep a record of your maintenance and remind yourself of what needs to be done.
It Works! It Helps!
One of the Home Improvement Resource Center articles helped me figure out what was wrong with my toilet. Even if you aren’t a do-it-yourself handyman, the Home Improvement Resource Center will help you to know what needs to be done, save money, and understand what the professionals you hire are doing.
