52 Library Card Uses

Learn about home improvement. Number 49 in a series of uses for your library card.

Put those tools away!
The first step in any home improvement project should be to sit down, think it through and make a plan. Your library can help, with books such as 52 Easy Weekend Home Improvements, the Time-Life Big Book Of Easy Home Fix-Ups, and Home Improvement For Dummies. These titles, and nearly one hundred others, all come up under a Subject Alphabetical catalog search for Dwellings -- Maintenance and repair -- Amateurs' manuals.
A simple General Keyword search for Home Improvement provides more than 130 hits, with titles such as Do-It-Yourself Home Improvement, My Home, My Money Pit, and Home Improvement 101. The use of more precise search terms will make it easy for you to find resources specific to your home care project.
The library also subscribes to Better Homes and Gardens, Taunton's Fine Homebuilding, The Family Handyman and other publications full of useful home improvement information.
If you have a home improvement project, make your library the first tool you use.
