Law Library

The law library is open to the public, the legal community, and local government agencies to provide access to legal information and assistance with legal research.

The Collection

The collection includes all primary legal materials at the state and federal level. The law library maintains a collection of secondary resources such as topical loose-leaf titles, legal encyclopedias, case digests, reference materials, and finding aids. The law library has a small collection continuing legal education course books and manuals. The law library subscribes to two private legal databases that are available to patrons to search without charge except for printing, which is $0.20 per page.


Circulation is limited to officers of the court, local and state government agencies, and their employees. All others must use materials while in the law library. A copier is available; copies are $0.20 per page.

Reference / Research Assistance

The law librarian and staff can assist the user in locating and using legal research materials in print or online. The law librarian and staff cannot provide legal advice or make any attempt to interpret the law. (See Revised Code of Washington {RCW} 2.48.170; 2.48.180; GR 24).
