The library was renovated and reopened in September 2014 under the direction of the Administrative Office of York County Courts, which now provides the funding for the law library in its budget.

At one time, the law library had in excess of 30,000 volumes located in the Library proper and in each judge’s chambers. Due to diminishing use and interest, as well as increasingly high costs, the volumes in the library were significantly reduced and the library downsized physically. Currently, several print publications are still housed in the library, in addition to public patron access to online legal research through WestlawNext and LexisAdvance. The Library now has increased resources for legal research.

The Library is open to the public during the hours that the Court House is open; circulation is limited to members of the York County Bar.
