Bosler Memorial Library is the new home to the Cumberland County Law Library.

The Law Library is here for both the legal community and the average citizen. In addition to the many volumes of State, County, and Local legal materials, the library has the following services available right now:

  • Bosler's "Layman's Law" Library
    This is a special collection of books on legal topics written in plain, easy-to-understand language. This is the place to start if you want general information and direction on how to pursue a legal matter. A few of the many topics included are Legal Terminology, Workplace Rights, Living Wills, Bankruptcy, Copyright Law, Immigration, and laws governing Non-Profit Organizations.
  • WestLawNext
    WestLawNext is a comprehensive legal research tool available online from any library internet computer. Would you like to look up public records, state and federal statutes, or legal terminology? Want to study Worker's Compensation laws, or understand your voter's rights? What are Pennsylvania's regulations in relation to drilling and mining? Do you need a legal form to draw up a lease or agreement? WestLawNext is a very powerful tool for these topics and much, much more.
