Recently, the American Library Association found that more people have library cards right now than at any other time in history. Given the economic downturn, this is unsurprising. Borrowing materials instead of purchasing them offers library patrons a great way to save money. But KDL can also help its patrons make the most of their money.
Kent District Library offers a variety of online databases that provide a wealth of information on many topics. KDL is proud to offer the full archives of Consumer Reports magazine online in full-text searchable format from 1999 to the current issue. Just click on the “General Reference Center Gold” link on the Reference Databases page. After that do a publication search for “Consumer Reports” and you’re all set to go. You can search for a specific product or browse the current issue or past issues. The Consumer Reports Buying Guides are also available.
This offers KDL patrons a great way to make sure they are buying only the highest quality consumer goods without ever leaving home.
