Sonoma County Public Law Library free, but needs help

From The Press Democrat

“In Santa Rosa there’s a beauty of a free-to-all library that you might never have noticed, though it’s been around for 125 years.It’s the sort of library you may not need until you really do, a library of the sort that many may miss dearly should budgetary troubles cause it to go away.“I think people don’t realize we’re here,” director Kim Tucker said from the handsome, harvest-hued interior of the Sonoma County Public Law Library.Long housed on the second floor of the utilitarian block of concrete that is the Hall of Justice, the law library now resides in former Agricultural Commissioner digs a short distance away on the county complex’s Ventura Avenue.”

Sonoma County Law Library to open on Saturdays as use rises

From The Press Democrat

” Being a self-described old-schooler, Santa Rosa attorney Desiree Cox still prefers to crack an actual book to hopping on the Internet to do legal research.Searching through books is a subtle luxury Cox can’t always afford because she’s busy trying cases all week and her favorite law library is closed on weekends.Or was, until now. In a partnership with Empire College School of Law, the Sonoma County Law Library will open Saturdays, allowing working people including non-lawyers a chance to peruse the stacks and even use the free computers on their days off.”
