In recognition of its grand opening in its new space, Fort Bend County Libraries’ Law Library, located in the Fort Bend County Justice Center in Richmond, will host an open house on Wednesday, Nov. 14, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The public is invited to enjoy refreshments, tour the library’s new space, and watch demonstrations of the library’s database resources. In addition, the library will host two Continuing Legal Education (CLE) programs, approved for 1.0 hour of MCLE credit each, beginning at 11 a.m. Seating is limited at the CLE classes, and registration is required.
As part of the Justice Center expansion project in 2018, the Law Library was relocated to a larger space on the second floor to accommodate the growing needs of the legal community and the general public. Renovations of the new space took place over the summer. The Law Library had its beginnings in 1989, when Fort Bend County Commissioners Court ordered the establishment and maintenance of a County Law Library in Richmond. The Commissioners Court authorized the Fort Bend County Bar Association to contract with Fort Bend County Libraries for the administrative operations of the County Law Library, effective Jan. 1, 1990.
The open house is free and open to the public. For more information, or to register for the CLE programs, call the Law Library at 281-341-3718. The Law Library is located in the Fort Bend County Justice Center at 1422 Eugene Heimann Circle, Room 20716, in Richmond.
