We looked (almost) everywhere

Don't Do It

Just because the front door to your local county public law library says the word "PUBLIC" on it doesn't mean you can walk out the front door with anything you want. If you didn't buy it or it wasn't given to you, it's not yours to do as you wish.
Love my job, I do.  What I don't like all that much is seeing materials walk out the library.  Well, I mean, it doesn't just sprout legs, get up, and walk out the front door of it… http://rclawlibrary.org/community/blog/2015/02/dont-do-it/

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 (…

The other day I had a guy come into the library.  A bit confused by all the thick books, he asks me if we (the law library) has any books about ships or shipping.  Thinking a bit … http://rclawlibrary.org/community/blog/2014/06/check-out/
