Riverside County Law Library

See the trees

Everyday, people walk into law libraries across the country, look around and leave because all they see are rows and rows of books (and it freaks them out). Give your friendly neighborhood county law Librarian 5 minutes and we'll show you what you need (…

You Really (really) Need to Read This

Few things are more annoying than having to read 4 point type fine print in a contract knowing full well that if you don't read the fine print, you're gonna get stung somewhere down the line. You just know it!
More and more, these days, is the instance where someone will come into the library asking for a book that talks about how to get out of a contract for the sale of a car or a boat… http://rclawlibrary.org/community/blog/2014/09/read-it/
