In March 2017, the State Law Library and St. Paul Public Library started a partnership to bring law library services to where our patrons are. Several times a month, law librarians hold legal reference "office hours" at five branches of the St. Paul Public Library. Since March 2017, law librarians have assisted over 500 patrons with their legal information needs. In this session, we will provide an overview of the history and implementation of this partnership. We will take a look at some of the challenges we have encountered. We will also look at the benefits of this program to each of our libraries and our patrons. Finally, we will conclude with ideas for additional partnerships that have developed as a result of our legal information program.
