Car Ownership and Maintenance 101: Be Prepared for Car Ownership at Virtual

Thursday, June 10, 2021 - 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM

Audience: Adults/ Teens

Categories: Educational Interest, Special Events, Teen Summer Reading

Click here to register:  After registering, you will receive an email with a link and phone number to join the program.  Milwaukee-based automotive educator Chaya Milchtein will be leading a series of two virtual classes. Starting with "Be Prepared for Car Ownership," Chaya will help adults and teens understand what their car is trying to tell them, starting with dash light recognition and the appropriate responses, when a car should be towed instead of driven, and basic preventative maintenance everyone should know how to do, like checking tire pressure.  Chaya has been teaching virtual classes for nearly four years across the United States at countless libraries, universities, non-profits, and private groups. She makes it clear throughout each class that no question is a silly one, encouraging participants to understand on a deeper level by asking them.   Chaya Milchtein is an automotive educator, writer, and speaker, and founder of Mechanic Shop Femme. Her work has appeared or been featured in publications ranging from the Chicago Tribune to Shondaland. With seven years in the auto industry under her belt and three years of virtual courses, you're sure to find her class engaging and her information easy to understand. You can find her on Instagram, TikTok, Facebook, and Twitter.
