About the Public Library Initiative

Many Trial Court services and resources are now available virtually, but not everyone knows about the remote services offered by the court or has the technology needed to take full advantage of these resources. That’s where the Public Library Initiative comes in. This initiative focuses on ensuring that no one gets left behind.

How do we do that? 

We help by offering access to virtual court services via the comfort and convenience of your local library. Our goal is to remove many of the barriers that people face in getting to our courts in person, or reaching us virtually, such as: transportation; childcare; stable internet access and/or computer access; and limited training or experience in using technology platforms such as Zoom.
