Be Your Own Mechanic

Everyone knows how expensive it is to take a car to a mechanic when it breaks down.  You can always go to the library and check out one of the Chilton's Repair Manuals, but those are big and bulky and what happens when the library doesn't have the manual for your car.  Now WHAT????!!!!

Here at the Maud Marks Library, we have the answer to your automotive problems.  Did you know that the Harris County Public Library has all that same information in an easy to access database?  On Saturday at 10 AM we will be hosting a class to teach you how to use the Chilton's Online Database.  Come and find all the diagrams and information you need to keep your car running like new.
