What’s the best snowblower? Laptop? Tablet?

Snowblower Ratings

So the 2018 Thanksgiving weekend snowstorm has you considering a snow blower for the next time Iowa City gets 8 inches. Or the gift giving season is causing you to pull your hair out about which laptop to buy to send Sally back to college with. Make informed decisions about your spending by looking up product ratings and reviews on Consumer Reports before you buy. 

The Iowa City Public Library subscribes to Consumer Reports and passes on that access to library card holders. If you live in Iowa City or one of our contracted services areas and have your library card and password, you can use Consumer Reports from home. It will ask you to contact the library if your card is expired or if you have more than $10 in fines.

I have been enjoying the Consumer Reports Holiday Central section of the website. Already I’ve read about the best way to transport Christmas trees, the best and worst charities to donate to, and whether butternut squash is good for you. (It gets an A+ for Vitamin A. Who knew?!)

And as always, if you are having trouble with anything, don’t hesitate to reach out to your friendly ICPL staff for back up. Just Ask Us!
