How We Can Help

Members of the public are welcome to visit the library for $5 a day (Mon. - Fri., 8:30am - 5pm) to do their own research. 

Jenkins librarians can help you find and use books and legal databases on our computers. Jenkins staff are not attorneys, so we cannot give you answers to your legal questions or give you legal advice. We cannot select or fill out forms, write briefs or memorandum, or conduct any research for you.

If you have a legal problem, we suggest you talk to an attorney. Please see our Self-Help: Free Legal Aid or Self-Help: Find a Lawyer guides. 

Computer Use, Printing & More

Visitors are welcome to use our computers for Word processing, to access the internet, and to do research via legal databases (Lexis, Westlaw, etc.). Visitors may be limited to using our legal databases for 2 hours a day if there is a high demand for them.

Printing from the computers: 10 cents a page

Photocopying: 10 cents a page

Purchase a flash drive (to save downloaded materials): $10.00

A ScannX book scanner is also available to use for free.
