Consult the documentation:

https://docs.python.org/3/library/index.html

It's probably the only place that has everything documented.
Instead of reading everything from A-Z though, the more typical approach 
is to skim through it to know what is available, then read in-depth the 
parts that seem useful for a concrete problem you're trying to solve 
currently. In my experience, a thorough understanding of most chapters 
doesn't come with reading alone, but with practice.

Best,
Wolfgang
