Reloading manuals Library

Just wondering if anyone has looked or found reloading manuals in library. I am waiting for my manual and press to get delivered ups, could be 3 wks. I am thinking the library might be a good place to look around for some reloading reference in the meantime.

Found one in our local poodunk library. Published in the sixties, not very helpful.
A lack of planning on your part does not necessarily constitute an emergency on my part.

This sounded interesting and made me look at our library web site.
They list exactly one book, the Handloaders Digest, circa 1962, 1997.
Dat's all.

Its not free, but for $30 per year you can go to

I believe they let you go on the site and see the amount of load data before you sign up. It has been a good resource for me. Hope this helps.

I live in a town of 40k people. Our library system covers a large area however. There are perhaps ten reloading manuals available. None are very new. Several have load data but without COAL included. Not very useful. But we do have a new ABC's of Reloading. It's worth looking online at your library at least.
