Online Services to Utilize while the library is closed to the public:

Out of an abundance of caution and in coordination with local public libraries and the City of Riverside's Local Emergency Declaration, all Riverside County Law Library locations will be closed to the public to reduce the risk of community spread of COVID-19 coronavirus. Library employees, contractors, authorized visitors and County Facilities staff will continue to have access to the buildings.

All Library-sponsored public programs are postponed during this period of closure.

The health and safety of Library employees and users is our first priority, and therefore, we will continue to monitor information from the Centers from Disease Control and Prevention and the Riverside County Public Health so the Library can respond rapidly as conditions change regarding COVID-19 coronavirus.

The public can still access Library reference services and other resources through:

Use Document Delivery Service-

This is a fee service to deliver via email documents requested by patrons, and must include a complete citation, article title or code section number. The fees are printed on the request form.

Use Inter-library loan requests-

This is a fee service for requesting materials from another library. The Library will search for the desired item at other libraries and will then assess the fee based on the lending library’s service charges plus cost of postage or shipping.


Access EBSCOHost Remotely-

This is a free service, but you must call the library for the remote user password. EBSCOhost is the world's most-used reference resource.  Our subscription includes digital versions of NOLO Press items including forms on a wide range of legal topics.


Review our Research Guides

This is a listing of free research guides on a variety of legal topics, such as finding a lawyer or divorce/legal separation.
