Better Than Google

How do you find the books you want to read?  Do you belong to Automatically Yours and have all your favorite author's new releases reserved for you?  Do you like the thrill of the hunt and choose serendipitously? Do you ask your friendly librarian for help? Do you read strictly from the best-seller list? My mother had an interesting way of choosing books; she just went to a library shelf and took four or five books in a row, without regard for what they were! I found that amusing and used to say to her,"Oh, you're reading from the Fs this week".  She may have found some great books that way, but she also probably read some duds.

Is your idea of a good time taking apart your 1967 Ford Mustang?  Do you enjoy changing your car’s oil?  Would you never pay a mechanic to work on your car when you can do it yourself?  If you have answered yes to any of these questions, you will be delighted by our newest database offering—ChiltonLibrary. 

For years libraries have provided Chilton manuals for car repairs to our patrons who were not afraid of getting their hands dirty.  We kept scores of old volumes in order to provide a wide range of years, makes and models.  But wouldn’t you know it, we never seemed to have the one someone needed right then.  It was frustrating for the patron and for us, knowing that no matter how many volumes we had, if it wasn’t yours, it was no good.  Now, with ChiltonLibrary, you can always find what you need.
