Public Law Library of King County

The King County Law Library has a new name, Public Law Library of King County, and a new Director, Rita Dermody.

Since the library is open to everyone, not just lawyers and court personnel, the King County Law Library Board of Trustees recommended this name change to make the public feel more welcome.

The Public Law Library of King County has a number of helpful services, including its website with links to research guides and court forms. The library also offers free classes on a rotating basis. Some examples are the following:

  • Civil Procedure in 90 Minutes
  • eFiling Basics and eFiling Advanced Features
  • How to Finish Your Divorce
  • Legal Research for the Non-Attorney Parts 1 and 2
  • Suing Mad: Commencing an Action (a new class)
The main library is located in downtown Seattle in the King County Courthouse. The branch library is located in Kent at the Maleng Regional Justice Center.
