Courthouse Libraries BC


Provides legal information service to the public via a network of libraries throughout BC. Librarians can help find legal information but cannot offer legal advice or interpret legal material. Largest library is Vancouver but all locations have both print & online resources for use in library. Vancouver & regional libraries provide reference assistance and are open Monday to Friday. Public access is limited in smaller libraries. Visit the Vancouver Library or contact for help by phone or email.
