The Lawyer in the Library program is a free legal information and referral program hosted by the Hayward Public Library and staffed by a volunteer lawyer. In a one-on-one telephone appointment, the lawyer can answer questions on most legal topics. If legal help is required, people are referred to other agencies.
Appointments usually run for about 10-15 minutes. Due to limited availability, we can only make one appointment per month per person or family.
To request an appointment, send your phone number and desired date to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 510-881-7980. Please do not send any confidential information in your email. Library staff will get back to you within three business days.
This program is co-sponsored by Alameda County Bar Association, Legal Access Alameda.
