With Your Help

acll-outside-12th-oakFrom the Alameda County Law Library

With your tax deductible donation the Alameda County Law Library can continue to serve attorneys and California residents.  The library does that by subscribing to expensive databases, treatises for attorneys and materials designed for self-represented litigants; and by employing experienced law librarians to help use those materials.

Over 95% of the Alameda County Law Library’s income comes from a portion of civil filing fees. Unfortunately, that income has plummeted to 2007 levels while the cost of legal materials skyrocketed more than 60%, from an average of $760 per title to more than $1,219 per title.

Your tax deductible gift helps everyone access the legal information they need. For example:

•    The law library saves attorneys time and money, by helping them refresh their knowledge of unfamiliar practice areas and by enabling them to use expensive legal research tools at no cost;

•    The law library helps self-represented individuals research legal issues they face ranging from topics such as traffic court to Social Security Administration demands for repayment of benefits.

Your Alameda County Law Library donation

  • helps keep up-to-date crucial materials
  • allows us to buy some new materials
  • keeps the libraries open.

Your tax-deductible gift not only helps support the mission of the law library, your gift of $50 or more also gets you the benefits of law library membership.
