Law Library

Law Library

According to Pennsylvania law, each county shall provide resources to maintain a law library open to the public as part of its judicial center.

As the only legal research facility in the county, the Law Library serves the needs of our Court of Common Pleas and other county offices, and also provides assistance to local attorneys, students, representatives from business and industry, the general public, and handles referrals and inquiries from other libraries in the county.

Library Collection

Every effort is made to provide comfortable facilities and quality, up-to date materials. The library's collection consists of over 20,000 volumes and is supplemented by computer assisted legal research, inter-library loan and other networking services, providing access to a wide variety of materials.

The Library adheres to the "County Law Library Standards" approved by the American Association of Law Libraries.
