      Welcome Katya,

      Well, you can always try Inter-Library Loan (ILL for short), at my local
      libray it runs about $2 or so to have them run the process through.
      Otherwise do you have a unviersity or college near? You might be able to get
      a library card to their library (I think my local university charges $35 to
      get a library card) and get books that the public libraries doesn't carry.
      If your local group has a e group list you can always ask and see if anyone
      has some of the books you want to look at and see about viewing the books at
      their place. I have found it better to be able to look at a book before
      deciding that I need that one on my own shelves.
