The library catalog looks for the words you enter in just a few places (title, author, sometimes table of contents), so in most cases just typing in your general topic will work best (e.g., skateboarding, ballet)
Some of your topics might be too specific or new for using the library catalog to find books. In those cases, search for more general topics. For example, r/wallstreetbets is too recent/specific, but a search on stock market, hedge funds, or Reddit could provide context or other background information.
