Library branches will be closed on Monday, January 20 for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. The African American Museum & Library at Oakland (AAMLO) will remain open regular business hours (10 AM - 5:30 PM) on January 20 for its annual film festival.
Lawyers in the Library
Free legal information and referral.
Sessions are popular and sometimes subject to change. Please call in advance to confirm on the day of the program.
We use a lottery system to determine the order in which participants may see the lawyer. Sign up between 5:30 and 5:45 PM. You must be present at 5:45 PM when lottery is drawn in order to reserve your position on the list. Please note that arriving early doesn't increase your chance of being seen first.
Although we attempt to see everyone, sometimes there are more participants than time allows.
