I have been in some Libraries where you couldn't find a worth while resource if your life depended on it... ... When it comes to Legal Interpreting stuff.... the best and most current is on the web, the trick is in knowing how to look for it, find it, and hold on to it. I recently went to Orange County CA. Law Public Library, and they barely had anything on legal interpreting, it was a big let down, but it forced me to create and research through alternate modes.
To answer the question---> 'free-ware' I think corresponds more to computer programs and applications that are free for users. The way the internet has made this widely possible is by being able to monetize its 'traffic' without having to directly advertise to subscribers/users/clients/consumers.... whatever you call it..... To learn more about how the internet is evolving to people's benefit, search web monetization, web traffic, pay per click, free-ware.

Because that's what all you need, really. Public library has all you need to bring your English to the highest level, and more: fiction, non-fiction, dictionaries, grammar book, etc. You name it - they have it.
My favorite of all - audiobooks (on tape or CD). Los Angeles public library has a wide selection of them. It's a great way to transform tedious driving time into learning time!
