California county libraries, established by an act of legislation, have been providing free access to legal resources to all persons for over one hundred years. County Law Libraries are governed by provisions of the California Business and Professions Code 6300 et seq.
County law libraries are funded primarily with a portion of civil filing fees and generally do not receive any tax dollars. Library staff are not county employees but are supervised by a six-member Board of Trustees. The Board meets the first Thursday of the month at 12:15 pm in the Law Library. Everyone is invited to attend and comment. The daily operations are overseen by the county law librarian with the assistance of one part-time aide.
