Fitchburg Law Library Moving to the Public Library

Set to re-open January 15th with evening hours

FITCHBURG, MA - On Wednesday, January 15th, the Fitchburg Law Library will re-open at its new location on the second floor of the Fitchburg Public Library, located at 610 Main Street.

The Law Library is a helpful resource for attorneys, those seeking to represent themselves, or anyone who wants to conduct research.

The library’s new hours take into account court sessions scheduled for small claims and Housing Court issues:
•           Monday & Wednesdays:  12 p.m. – 8 p.m.
•           Fridays:  10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

“A number of people in the community came together to keep this tremendous public resource open, and have helped us make the move to our new space in the public library,” said Trial Court Administrator Harry Spence.

“We’d like to thank Mayor Lisa Wong, Senator Jennifer L. Flanagan, Representative Stephen DiNatale, and the trustees of the library for their efforts to ensure residents of north central Worcester County continue to have access to this important legal resource,” Mr. Spence said.

The Massachusetts Trial Court operates 17 Law Libraries across the state, serving the judiciary, attorneys, and the general public. The Law Library website, www.lawlib.state.ma.us, provides e-reference, live chat with law librarians, and other capabilities, with millions of online visitors in 2013.
