Actually, nothing can replace reading books. However, if you are
interested in specific topics and ask questions regarding them here on
the list, you will probably get some answers that at least help you to
find books on those topics in your local library or that you can order
via interlibrary loan.

Bruce already pointed you at Angus Og's Every Celtic Thing on the Web,
which is definitly the best point to start you can get to find Celtic
stuff on the Web.
Anyways, do you have any specific questions regarding Celtic myths or
don't you know anything about them at all and just want to get a start?
If it's just a start you want, I would recommend that you try to get
hold of one of the following two books:
Miranda J. Green, Celtic Myths. London: British Museum Publications,
Miranda J. Green, Dictionary of Celtic Myth and Legend. London, Thames
and Hudson, 1992.
The first one is a little booklet that contains summaries of the more
important Celtic Myths, while the second is a dictionary containing
short entries on most important figures and places from Celtic
