Law Library FAQ

I'm wondering...


The Law Library is located on the first floor of the Main Library past the Reference area.


The Law Library is open any hours the Main Library is open. Staff is available Monday – Friday from 10am – 12pm and 2pm-4 pm Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays.  Also by appointment.

Library card

You do not need a library card to use the Law Library or its materials.  All of the materials are considered reference materials and can only be used in the building.

Write My Document

No, we are not allowed to explain law or write documents for you as that could be seen as practicing law, which is prohibited by State law.  We do have resources that can provide you with samples.



Case Information

ask Meldon


No, but we can refer you to a lawyer referral service. Contact the Central Virginia Legal Aid Society.


None of the books in the Law Library can be checked out.  However, the Main Library and some of our branches have some consumer-oriented law books that might help.


Our subscription databases can only be used at the Main Library.
