Law Library

​The health and safety of Law Library employees and users is our first priority, and therefore, we will continue to monitor information from the Centers from Disease Control and Prevention and the Humboldt County Public Health so the Law Library can respond rapidly as conditions change regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus).

​Law Library Staff will be working behind the scenes to provide reference assistance by phone, email, and chat service (employees, contractors, authorized visitors and County Facilities staff will continue to have access to the building).
