Chetco Library: It’s in the newsletter

Chetco Library cardholders can now access reliable automotive help online 24/7 through Chilton Library.

Trusted by automotive enthusiasts for more than 100 years, ChiltonLibrary supports “do-it-yourselfers” of all skill levels. It provides access to repair, maintenance and service information on the most popular cars, trucks, vans and SUVs on the road today!

This continually updated resource provides step-by-step repair procedures, as well as troubleshooting guides and diagnostic trouble codes, photos, illustrations, diagrams and multimedia (videos and animations) to simplify even the most complicated tasks.

In addition to finding repair information, library users are able to 1) Look up recalls and service bulletins; 2) Find estimated labor time, helping users confidently estimate repair costs; and 3) Prepare for ASE mechanic certification with test-prep quizzes.

With product enhancements such as mobile optimization and ReadSpeaker text-to-speech technology, ChiltonLibrary is a perfect solution for all vehicle needs. Repair, maintenance and specification tables provide critical data on thousands of domestic and imported models of cars and light trucks, from 1940 onward.
