We have a really great public library system in my city. We can access most books and if they are not available in our home branch, we can have them brought over. There are also a great amount of resources available online. I keep a stack of books checked out. Sometimes I have to renew them a couple of times because life happens before I finish reading them. Most of the books I have checked out right now are about making art but I have this cookbook, which helps to provide a break and some ways to spruce up meals at our house.
