well not knowing specifics i don't know exactly what youre after.
for low level stuff learning gnu c (http://www.nongnu.org/c-prog-book/) covers all of gnu c libraries stuff.
other than than read the man pages and source code.

if you google alsa, im sure you would find something useful also

i don't think you will get many bites as its a very broad question, i don't know if youre new to programming/linux, if youre new to linux if you read a good introduction to programming in linux that will give you the basics and then concentrate on what you enjoy programming.
if youre new to programming, just start from the bottom, you will soon get a feel for what you enjoy programming, then you can research specific libraries then.

ps take a look at the stickies in programming talk forum
