Every Public Library in the state of Delaware has a diabetes “information section”. There is information on diabetes in general, cookbooks, and other resources which are available to check out using your library card. The libraries also have computers you can use to go to the internet and find even more information on diabetes. If you have never used the computer before, the library personnel will be happy to help you. Take this Resource Guide with you and show them the websites you would like to view.
