Riverside County Law Library

Sneaky. Very Sneaky, Indeed...

Sometimes the best books are the ones that no one thinks to read. Sometimes the best books are the ones that sneak up on you and help to expand your horizons. Sometimes the best place to find a good book is at your local county law library.
The other day I was talking with a friend of mine who was in a book club.  Seems she was on the prowl for a new book for her book club to dissect.  She was looking for something w… http://rclawlibrary.org/community/blog/2014/11/sneaky-very-sneaky-indeed/

Coulda, Shouda, Woulda

On NPR this morning, I heard that the unemployment rate was back down below 6%, a rate that we haven’t seen since about July of 2008 (the rate for that month was 5.8).  By August … http://rclawlibrary.org/community/blog/2014/10/lawyers-and-law-library/

Brace for Impact

While California is the litigation capital of the world, most (sane) people don't wake up in the morning and go looking for a lawsuit. Sometimes, bad things just happen when you least expect it. When that happens, best you can do is brace for impact.
The other day, as I was sitting in Southern California traffic, I glanced over at a large dump truck and its driver.  Seems driver had failed to set the parking brake on his 70 to… http://rclawlibrary.org/community/blog/2014/11/brace-impact/

What's In A Name

What should we call the people who frequent a library

The Internet is a Trap

While the Internet is a great research tool full of free and easy to locate stuff, when you absolutely, positively need something of value, odds are the only place you'll find it is at your local county law library
A problem with the Internet age is that people seem to think that if they didn't find it on the Internet, it's not worth using.   More to the point, if they can't find it on Goo… http://rclawlibrary.org/community/blog/2014/07/internet-trap/
