Arrowhead Library System Launches ChiltonLibrary

Arrowhead Library System (ALS) now offers free access to the popular ChiltonLibrary online resource for patrons residing in Carlton, Cook, Itasca, Koochiching, Lake, Lake of the Woods and St. Louis counties.   

ChiltonLibrary provides free 24/7 online access to repair, maintenance and service information on the most popular cars, trucks, vans, and SUVs on the road today as well as many new vehicles.  This continually updated resource provides step-by-step repair procedures, troubleshooting guides and diagnostic trouble codes, photos, illustrations, diagrams, and multimedia (video and animations) to help simplify even the most complicated tasks.  Trusted by automotive enthusiasts for more than 100 years, ChiltonLibrary supports “do-it-yourselfers” of all skill levels, and no other source contains more years, makes and models. 

“ChiltonLibrary helps patrons save money on car repairs by offering expert, step-by-step guidance on how to conduct repairs themselves.  We are thrilled to offer this free resource to our regional residents,” said ALS Regional Librarian Mollie Stanford.
