The Lawyer in the Library program of the Alameda County Bar Association comes to the Fremont Main Library from 6 to 8 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of each month, except December. This month, it will be on March 22. Patrons who wish to avail themselves of this service need to submit their names between 5 and 5:45 p.m. at the Information Desk. Names are drawn at 5:50 p.m., and each person must be present when his or her name is called in order to be assigned a 15-minute appointment with a lawyer. Sometimes more patrons sign up than can be accommodated. Other libraries host this program and it pays to contact the participating library in advance to confirm the date and time and to inquire about the sign-up procedure, which varies. The Information Desk at Fremont Main can be reached at tel. (510) 745-1401.

Besides the Lawyer in the Library program, legal information is available at the Alameda County Library website, under the Research tab. Forms and information in a number of languages are available at the Self-help Center, which also offers the option to Ask a Law Librarian. (Librarians may point to sources of information but cannot provide legal advice or interpretations of the law.) These online resources are worth noting since the popular NOLO and other law guides seldom stay on library shelves. The Fremont Main Library’s legal reference section, a mere fraction of the collections in the Alameda County Law Library in Oakland and Hayward, has select publications for use only within the library. Dan Hess of the Albany Library recently took pictures of Fremont Main’s legal reference shelves and created the following image.
