New Drop-In Hours with Law Librarian at Beaverton City Library

BEAVERTON, Ore. – What can or can't my landlord do? What does the Second Amendment really say? What rights do I have when speaking with the police? What will happen to my parents' house when they pass away?

These questions and more can be answered by the Washington County Law Librarian during Beaverton City Library’s new program, Law Librarian in the Library. This free, drop-in program occurs on the fourth Tuesday of every month (February 26, March 26, etc.) between 3 and 7 p.m. at the table in the northeast corner on the second floor of the main library (12375 SW 5th St).

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.

During the Law Librarian in the Library drop-in hours, 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. Please know that Library staff may not engage in the practice of law, so are prohibited from interpreting legal materials or advising patrons on their legal right.

This program is free and open to the public; no registration is required. For more information, visit www.BeavertonLibrary.org or call 503-644-2197.

Beaverton City Library is one of fifteen member libraries in Washington County Cooperative Library Services (WCCLS), which works to provide responsive and efficient library service countywide through centralized catalog, courier and other services.
