For those of you handy folks with car trouble, the Waltham Public Library has the perfect database for you: The Auto Repair Reference Center. You can repair any car going back several years. You can even repair a Jeep from as way back as 1945. The graphics on this database are superb and while it may not turn everyone into a mechanic, it will give owners more knowledge when taking their cars to repair shops. While this database is available at any computer in the library, you can also access it from home, as long as you’re a Waltham resident.
And, for those of you who would prefer not to use a database or who are not Waltham residents, the library still subscribes to a large variety of auto repair manuals that can be checked out.
