The County maintains a public library as required by state statute. Within the library there are Michigan and Federal statutes, cases and other supplemental materials. The library is open to the public with the understanding that the materials in the library are written for individuals who have a law school education or are pursuing a career as a lawyer.
The library staff is only allowed to provide research assistance to the judiciary. Staff will try to direct other patrons to materials appropriate to their inquiries, but will be unable to provide detailed assistance or instruction in legal research. Staff is prohibited by law from giving legal advice to library patrons.
