After taking a break in December, the Lawyer in the Library program at Fremont Main 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.
