Fall is upon us and it’s this time of year that the annual report of RCLL’s activities and highlights of the fiscal year’s accomplishments comes out. Year 2020-2021 was wrought with challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While our building was closed to the public for most of the year, we effectively transitioned to online services enabling the public to avail of our legal research materials, programs, and classes without needing to set foot in the library. I am pleased to share with you a few of the service enhancements and accomplishments highlighted in the 2020-2021 Annual Report.

Construction work in our downtown facility is in full swing. You can expect to see a construction crane in our parking lot and construction crew members going in and out of our library building. The crew is working especially hard to keep construction noise to a minimum and to avoid disruption of work for our library users and staff. Library closure is anticipated from December 17th through the end of 2021.
The COVID-19 pandemic has undoubtedly disrupted our “normal” library operations and significantly impacted how we deliver our services to the public. However, everyone in the law library has stepped up to the challenge, continued to work hard to provide access to quality legal information services and resources in a new and more efficient manner, unconstrained by physical space. Our goal is to continue to provide county residents with remote access to the library’s legal databases and programs, as well as, built upon the service enhancements that we have made despite of and perhaps because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
As always, your continued support is greatly appreciated.
