The process of buying or selling a home can be stressful. Homeownership is a large investment in terms of time and money. You can put your mind at ease by visiting the library. We have a wealth of resources to help educate homeowners.
BUYING AND SELLING
Are you a first time homebuyer? Or, are you thinking of selling your home? The library houses information on cities and towns to help you with relocation decisions. Homebuyers can explore the local market and use online real estate sites such as Zillow and individual realtor listings. Sellers can come to learn about staging homes and access materials to help with the moving process.
We have information on maintaining and repairing outside structures such as roofs, siding and sheds. The library is a great place to look for resources on landscaping and lawn care. We can help you learn about building ponds and gardens or finding the perfect tree for your property.
Basic home repair and remodeling resources are available. Our materials can help you learn more about HVAC systems, wiring, carpentry, tiling, painting and a variety of home-care subjects. When it's time for decorating, we have information on interior design topics like choosing colors, furnishing, and working within your budget.
MAKING SMART PURCHASES
The Information Services staff has compiled a guide to help you access reputable product review sites online. We can also help you find Consumer Reports for product reviews before you make important purchases of appliances, paint, tools, or other household goods.
