NH LAW LIBRARY HOURS CHANGE MAY 2

CONCORD—The New Hampshire Law Library at the Supreme Court building in Concord will be closed to the public three mornings a week, beginning May 2, to allow staff time to keep up with cataloguing, processing materials and maintenance of the Law Library website. The Supreme Court decision to reduce library hours, and to leave two library staff positions vacant, followed reductions in staff statewide necessitated by budget cutbacks in the court system's FY 12-13 budget.

The new library hours will be:

  • Monday & Friday, 8:30 - 4:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, 12:30 - 4:30 p.m.

Telephone message and e-mails will be monitored so that emergency requests are addressed promptly. The schedule will be reviewed every 30 days to determine if reduced hours are still needed.

The New Hampshire Law Library, located at One Charles Doe Drive in Concord , is the only public law library in the state. Its mission is to advance the administration of justice by providing legal information and related services to the judicial, legislative, and executive branches of government, the legal communities of New Hampshire , and the people of the state.
