A Cheesy Affair is happening in Kamloops on April 15th, 2012.  I thought I’d give a few links for inspiration to those entering, or thinking of entering this fun event:
The Cheese Cookbook (1942) from openlibrary.org. Sign up and borrow an online edition of this book for free! http://openlibrary.org/books/OL24203143M/The_cheese_cook_book
The Complete Book of Cheese (1955) from archive.org (no need to be a member to read this one!) http://www.archive.org/details/thecompletebooko14293gut
Here are 2129 cheese recipes from the BBC Food website: http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/search?keywords=cheese
Here is a limited preview of The Great Big Cheese Cookbook (2009) from Google Books: http://books.google.ca/books?id=f07Wyvxi-x8C&printsec=frontcover&dq=cheese+cookbook&hl=en&sa=X&ei=7MNiT56xBMrfggfv8on0Ag&ved=0CEAQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q&f=false  This book is also available at the Cache Creek library - the Kamloops library can bring this in for you. 
Finally, this is not really a link, but check out Fratelli Foods at 223 Victoria Street, Kamloops.  They have a great selection of cheeses to ponder over!
