Public Access Law Libraries

Photo - LibraryMany of our public access law libraries are closed or open by appointment only due to the coronavirus pandemic; review this list to determine whether the law library closest to you is currently open.

Each county must have a library with legal information that everyone can use. Legal information includes laws, court cases, and other materials that build and expand on the laws of New York State. Law libraries in some counties have legal resources that law libraries in other counties do not, but you can use the online library catalog, called Symphony, to find out what is available at the law library closest to you. Each law library has material that you can use online from your computer, as well as print materials that you can only use inside the library itself. Below, you can find a list of all the law libraries and their addresses, organized alphabetically by county.
