Expanding Resources At the Durham County Library
The library was one of the first resources I went to when I was first diagnosed with Celiac Disease. In 2006 I think there were less than 10 listings under gluten or celiac disease.... consisting of some gluten free cookbooks and Jax Peter Lowell book, The Gluten Free Bible, which I read cover to cover. My first post on Gluten Free Durham three years ago mentioned the gluten free resources available at the Durham County Library. At that time the listings had grown to 20 options. A search in the library data base today yields 66 titles under the general keyword "gluten"! Some of the older cookbooks are dated 1990 with the newest books released this year. Remember when reading older publications some information and guidelines may be out-dated. Some of the older cookbooks are great classic resources, yet some of the newer books include recipes with healthier whole grains. As always check with your health care provider on specific details in managing your gluten disorder.
