Library Resource Helps Holiday Shopping Research

by Katie Pyzyk December 6, 2011 at 1:30 pm 2,337 8 Comments

The Arlington County Library is offering help to those trying to comparison shop for holiday gifts. Users are able to tap into the library’s subscription of Consumer Reports.

In addition to being able to peruse hard copies of the magazine at branches throughout the county, the library is offering online access. Readers can compare the items reviewed in recent issues of the magazine, as well sift through the archives from the past four years.

Users need to enter their Arlington library card number and PIN code after clicking on the link to access Consumer Reports.

    Maybe they can hire Helen Thomas (depicted in the picture above) to show patrons where to find the copy of Mein Kampf?

      Every time there’s a picture of the CL interior, eh?

      Is it possible to “enjoy” going out to, say, the library on a Saturday night?

        Probably not given the hours of the library on saturdays.

        Depends on who you’re with.

      Would be interesting to see what she’s actually reading in that photo.

    The ArlCo library cornucopia of innovative offeromgs is bottomless.

    Best wishes of the season and for the new year to the good folks at the ArlCo library.
