The Riverside County Law Library is the only public law library in the County and serves more than 2.4 million residents. With a budget of approximately $1.8 million, the Law Library provides free access to current collection of legal materials, highly skilled and knowledgeable staff, free public education programs, as well as quality continuing legal education classes. Unlike a typical public library, the Riverside County Law Library receives no income from taxes, special bond issues or local government appropriations. It is primarily funded by a small portion of the County’s civil court filing fee. It is a County Special District effectively functioning as an independent public agency organized under the California Business & Professions Code Section 6300 – 6363.
