The Madelyn Helling Library is pleased to partner with the Public Defender's office to make the Lawyer in the Library program available. Once a month, lawyers will be available to consult on issues, with no legal ramifications for the participant. Any member of the public can request a time slot with the lawyer from 3-5 PM on the first Friday of every month. These private consultations will be held in the Prospector and Gold Rush rooms in the Technology Center of the Madelyn Helling Library.While you do not have to reserve a time to meet with the Lawyers in the Library, if you would like more in-depth help you can call the Library at 265-7050 to reserve a time and to give a short background of your issue. This will enable your consultant to more thoroughly research your specific issue.
