Nappanee residents can access reliable automotive help online 24/7 through ChiltonLibrary. Trusted by automotive enthusiasts for more than 100 years, ChiltonLibrary supports “do-it-yourselfers” of all skill levels. 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, or by having greater knowledge about their vehicle when taking it to a professional for service. Residents with a library card can tap into this resource through their home computers, iPads or tablets around the clock, in addition to being able to access the information here at the library.

ChiltonLibrary, from Gale, a Cengage company, provides 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 as well as troubleshooting guides and diagnostic trouble codes, photos, illustrations, diagrams, and multimedia (videos and animations) simplify even the most complicated tasks.

In addition to finding repair information, library users are able to:

  • Look up recalls and service bulletins
  • Find estimated labor time helping users confidently estimate repair costs
  • Prepare for ASE mechanic certification with test prep quizzes

ChiltonLibrary supplies a solution for the “do-it-yourselfer” that is easy to use no matter the skill level. With product enhancements such as mobile optimization and ReadSpeaker text-to-speech technology, ChiltonLibrary is a perfect solution for all vehicle needs. Repair, maintenance and specification tables provide critical data on thousands of domestic and imported models of cars and light trucks from 1940 onward. 


With access to authentic “attorney forms,” residents can better understand common legal procedures and the involved documents. Unlike other online legal products – which frequently include generic, do-it-yourself materials that may not have been drafted by an attorney – Gale LegalForms offers a well-organized collection of forms actually used in legal practices and allows users to edit the forms as they need.

Gale LegalForms delivers real-world legal information to residents in usable and customizable formats and simplifies common law transactions. This database will help library users take greater control over their legal affairs.

From Gale, a Cengage company, Gale LegalForms offers an easy-to-use, state-by-state, and step-by-step approach to addressing basic legal matters, such as developing a will, conducting real estate transactions including rental or lease agreements, and more. Users have access to thousands of customizable online legal documents that are available anytime, anywhere.

Many of the forms can be used across all 50 states and are state-specific. Coupled with a straightforward interface, users avoid hours of research often required to develop legal documents. Users can simply locate the appropriate form that’s needed by using the homepage links, download the form and plug in their information.

Nappanee residents can access ChiltonLibrary or LegalForms 24/7, on any device by visiting the library’s electronic resources.
