Looking for something to cook? Head to the library.

Although the shelf holding my collection of vegetarian cookbooks is overflowing, sometimes I’m looking for something new. So, rather than committing to purchasing a whole new cookbook, I head over to our local library.

You can search on their catalog or just go to the section 641.5636 (vegetarian cookery) in the shelves. Wander into the cookbooks by subject and you will find even more cookbooks that may contain some meat recipes but specialize in certain types of vegetables. I’ve found that helpful when I have a vegetable sitting on my counter, staring me in the face, and I have no idea how I’m going to cook it. I can also do an online search to see what books my local library has and I can see if they are checked out or not.

Also, if your library has a Friends of the Library book sale, stop by and check out the selection of cookbooks. Invariably, there will be several vegetarian cookbooks for sale – many are best sellers and some are out of print so you would not be able to find them any other place. I find it to be a look back into history of vegetarianism. You’ll be supporting the library and you may find some unique additions to your own personal library.  Don’t forget to donate any books you’re finished reading or using to the library it’s a great way to recycle.
