You already know that Consumer Reports is one of the leading sources of reliable product ratings and consumer information. You may also know that you can ask at your library Information Desk to read issues of the magazine in print. But if you’ve visited Consumer Reports’ website, you’ll know that much of their online content is behind a paywall. Your Chandler Public Library can help you access that content - for free with your library card and even from home!
Log in to ConsumerReports from the library’s website and you can access their full online content: articles from the magazine, product reviews, special web-only features and more. Start at chandlerlibrary.org and hover your mouse over the purple Research & Learning tab. Then click A-Z List of Resources, and scroll down to choose ConsumerReports. You’ll need your library card and PIN if you’re signing in from home. Then you can search for a product to view ratings and buying guides, or read the featured articles and special reports.
Can’t make it in to the library to get a card? We now offer eCards that allow access to our online resources, including Consumer Reports! If you’re a Maricopa County resident, you can fill out the online form to register for your eCard. See more at our Get a Library Card page. eCard users can come in to the library at any time to upgrade to a full-access card that allows checkout of books and other physical materials.
