Events for Adults @ BCL Main

  1. Law Librarian in the Library

    October 22, 2019, 3:00 PM - 7:00 PM @ 2nd floor, NE corner table

    What can or can't my landlord do? What rights do I have when speaking with the police? How do I deal with an unruly tenant? What will happen to my parents' house when they pass away? The Washington County Law Library provides research training, legal reference assistance, and access to a variety of legal information resources. Law librarians can help identify relevant legal research materials, provide instruction on effective use of resources, and provide referrals to appropriate agencies or organizations. Note: library staff may not engage in the practice of law, so are prohibited from interpreting legal materials or advising patrons on their legal right. During these visits, the law librarian will provide legal reference assistance, track statistics, provide information about the Law Library to patrons, and, when appropriate, refer patrons back to the library or to legal aid or other legal service providers. Free and open to the public; no registration required.
