Consumer Reports Now Available

One of our most requested resources over the years has been Consumer Reports. We have buying guides at our branches, but sometimes that’s just not enough. Thanks to the passage of Proposition L, we are now able to offer access to, the in-depth online version of Consumer Reports. Patrons have access to unbaised product reviews, ratings, blogposts from industry experts, buying advice, and much more! Consumer Reports has been a trusted source for analyzing and comparing products for years, and now it’s all at your fingertips. Did you not get the TV you wanted for Christmas? Research the top brands and use that stocking money to upgrade. Do you just have to have an air fryer? See how different brands stack up. Then, when you find one you like, click the SHOP link to find it in a store near you.

With reviews on over 8,500 products, including cookware, appliances, electronics, cars, watches, and more, it’s easier to make a trusted purchase online. Consumer Reports even has timely articles, like how to travel safely. Don’t know where to start? Use the search feature at the top of the site or view an A-Z List of all products.
