The Tolland Public Library is now offering access to a do-it-yourself online repair guide for fixing and maintaining your cars and trucks.
Thanks to a $1,935 grant from the Tolland Public Library Foundation, library patrons can now access the Auto Repair Reference Center for free at the library or from home using their library cards.
Library officials said the database features repair instructions for more than 37,000 vehicle makes made from 1945 to the present. It includes many drawings and photos as well as wiring diagrams for many vehicles, officials said.
The database also includes more than 110,000 technical bulletins and recall notices.
To use the database from home, visit http://www.tolland.org/library/ and click on the auto repair icon. Patrons must have a Tolland library card to login to the database from there.
