Who do you consult when you have to make a big purchase? If you want an objective, evidence-based opinion, you may want to check out Consumer Reports. Consumer Reports is a not-for-profit organization that's been reviewing products since 1936. Whether you're buying a dryer, a set of tires, a television or a tablet, CR gives you facts to guide you in the purchasing process.
And how can you access Consumer Reports articles from home, for free? With your Fresno County Public Library card. FCPL gives you free online access to even the newest issues of Consumer Reports. Log in from work, home or wherever you're connected to the internet. If you don't already have a card, simply take your valid ID to any branch and complete a library card application. As always, Library staff is here to help! Call us at (559) 600-WOWW or email us now.
FCPL databases provide cardholders with a vast amount of accurate, free online information. This blog post is a part of a weekly series highlighting FCPL databases and is tagged with the blog tag “Resource of the Week.”
