Visiting the Library

The library is open for in-person use without prescheduled appointments.

All Library visitors must follow the Judiciary’s COVID-19 health measures. Face masks are no longer required for vaccinated individuals. Those who have not been vaccinated must continue to wear face masks and maintain social distancing.

Library computers are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Staff will impose a 15 minute limit if patrons are waiting. 

The internet and our databases are accessible via the library's WiFi. If your research requires the use of online resources, and you can bring a laptop, the time restriction will not apply. (May 28, 2021)
