Lawyers in Libraries is a joint effort by The Iowa State Bar Association, Iowa Legal Aid and the Polk County Bar Association Volunteer Lawyers Project to help provide free legal information to Iowans across the state. This Spring, lawyers will make one-hour presentations followed by question-and-answer sessions at local public libraries throughout the state.  



The library makes every effort to ensure our programs can be enjoyed by all. If you have any concerns about accessibility or need to request specific accommodations, please contact the library.
