Once a year libraries throughout the nation celebrate National Library Week and bring awareness to the contributions of all libraries and library workers. In 1954 a National Book Committee was formed by the American Library Association (ALA) and the American Book Publishers in response to a growing concern that Americans were less invested in reading than radios, television, and musical instruments. From this committee with help from ALA and the Advertising Council, National Library Week was born. In 1958 the first National Library week was celebrated with the theme, “Wake Up and Read!”

While law school may teach you about the law, your local county law librarian can teach you how to find and use legal resources. In fact, your local county law librarians are probably your best resource for teaching you how to do your own legal research because that's what we do all day - study law and legal things.

Tax season, it sneaks up on you. For several years our Main Library has been providing print tax forms and instruction booklets courtesy of the IRS and the State of California. Guaranteed every January we start receiving calls asking for tax forms and we have learned we’re one of the only places for miles that still carry them.
