Wednesday is County Law Library Day in California

By Kelly on August 15, 2016//Leave a comment

This Wednesday, August 17, has officially been declared County Law Library Day in California. The Senate Resolution was adopted on a 35-0 vote.

 

Also, that is the day that the county law libraries are celebrating their 125th anniversary with a reception and program in Sacramento.  At the reception, San Diego Law Library Director John Adkins will be receiving the County Law Library Day proclamation from Senator Lois Wolk on behalf of California’s county law libraries.  What an honor!

 

Always remember that the law libraries are open to everyone. We’re proud of our 125 years of providing access to justice.

    Congratulations!

    I don’t know if it is possible to provide access to justice within a legal system. We don’t have a justice system, we have an adversarial legal system where, when the whims and prejudices of human judges don’t shape decisions, laws, however unjust they may be, certainly can.

    But you do provide access to law for people like me who otherwise wouldn’t have such access, and in a for-profit system, that is a rare and precious accomplishment.

    I’m happy to be a beneficiary of your wonderful library, and to be able to congratulate you on your well-deserved award.

    Here’s to another 125 years of helping ordinary people survive an exceptionally and extraordinarily unjust system. Thank you!
