  1. My husband and I love this new feature at the library! How wonderful to be able to access Consumer Reports’ ratings and recommendations on products online for FREE!

  2. The address only leads to an advertisement database. If I search ads for consumer reports, it only leads to their main page. I’ve used this service through the library before without issue. Now something has changed. Please advise how to access Consumer Reports. I highly value this service.
