Public librarians are often a trusted source of information on subjects that have a huge impact on patrons’ lives. This can include aspects of everyday life that intersect with the law, like landlord disputes, child custody issues, gun ownership, end-of-life planning, and more. If you are a public librarian with little experience researching what the law says, you may feel nervous about how to answer patrons’ questions about the law without veering into legal advice.
To meet this need, Amy Small and Laura Gienger, reference librarians at the Texas State Law Library, are providing a webinar about the many free resources that the Texas State Law Library offers. The presentation will help build your confidence in providing legal information to patrons and help you know when to refer them to another entity that can provide the help they need.
The webinar will take place on Thursday, January 13 from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m.. Register now.
