This year the last chance to meet with a volunteer lawyer at Fremont Main will be on Law-logo[1]Tuesday, November 26. The Lawyer in the Library program resumes on January 28, 2014, the fourth Tuesday of that month. During the break, appointments with volunteer lawyers may still be available in other libraries. Since registration methods vary, be sure to contact the host library beforehand and find out how to register. At Fremont Main, those seeking a 15-minute consultation with a lawyer need to register in person at the Information Desk between 5 and 5:45 p.m. on the day of the program. A lottery at 5:50 p.m. assigns the time of the appointment. The phone number for the Info Desk is (510) 745-1401.

Take a peek at the library’s online Legal Information Resource Center to prepare for a meeting with any lawyer.

After taking a break in December, the Lawyer in the Library program at Fremont MainLaw-logo[1] resumes this month.  On the fourth Tuesday each month, from January through November, those who wish to speak with an attorney can submit their names in person from 5 to 5:45 p.m. at the Information Desk.  At 5:50 p.m. names will be drawn to assign 15-minute free on-site consultations with a member of the Alameda County Bar Association who will help define the problem and make referrals when needed.  Persons seeking an appointment must be present at the time of the lottery.  Occasionally more people sign up than can be accommodated, so a visit with a lawyer is not guaranteed.  The 15-minute consultations start at 6 p.m., with the last one at 7:45 p.m.

The 2013 Lawyer in the Library schedule at Fremont Main is shown below.  Information on other Lawyer in the Library programs can be found here.  Be sure to call the host library to inquire about its registration procedure, which varies from location to location.  For more information, contact the Fremont Main Library Information Desk at (510) 745-1401.

The very popular Kids Library Camp at Centerville Library was held on June 21 and 23.  As some kids said in their surveys: “This camp rocks!!!!”, “I liked the camp, it was fun!”, “Library camp was very fun!”, “I like this library a lot. It is the best library ever!”

During this 1-and-half-day fun-packed camp, kids learned about how their library works for them and where to find homework resources, discovered cool Internet websites and how to keep themselves safe, enjoyed very interesting booktalks, had a very tense and exciting Jeopardy game, and made creative paper-weaving crafts.
