Welcome to the Public Law Library

We are free to use and have two locations.  The Salinas Branch is pictured above and is located behind the Salinas Courthouse. We have updated books on criminal law and the online database of Westlaw. Forms can be filled out for expungement of criminal records or civil cases.

County public law libraries were created by statute and are controlled and funded through the provisions of the California Business and Professions Code Sections 6300 et seq. Each county, unless excepted, must have at least one library, located at the county seat. The Monterey County Law Library is just one of more than fifty public law libraries in California.

The Monterey County Law Library is dedicated to supplying the public and legal community with the best possible access to legal materials through hard copy holdings and electronic media, including the internet.

In most counties, including Monterey, the county public law library is the major, if not the only, source of legal materials for the general public. The majority of the library budget is used to insure that the public has access to California and Federal case and statutory law. The library also attempts to satisfy the legal community's need for reference and practice books to the full extent that the budget will permit.
