Automotive Repair

Do you take it upon yourself to maintain your vehicle rather than drive it to a shop?  Do you rotate the tires, change the oil, or drain and replenish the radiator fluid on a regular basis?  For basic auto work, you've probably relied upon a model specific copy of the Chilton or Haynes manual to guide you through the task at hand.  Did you know that you can access numerous Chilton guides from your personal computer or a public computer at the library?  Just click on the Databases tab located on the HCPL homepage and look for the automotive link.  Here, you should find more than enough information to start turning a wrench.

NEW DRAFT PERMIT @YOUR LIBRARY!

Because the North Channel Library receives new draft permits for review, we want to share one with you. Draft TPDES Permit - Harris County Municipal Utility District No. 285 dated November 2009 is now available for your review. This and other permits are kept in the Ready Reference shelving area near the Consumer Reports magazines and books. What caught my eye on this draft is that it involves Carpenter's Landing Bayou-our next door neighbor! If you are interested in the water quality of our local bayou, you might want to read this draft. A comment period is now in effect on this amendment to the original permit granted to M.U.D. 285-Plant 2. Stop by to review this important document soon!
