Building off our successful Lawyers in the Library program, Baltimore County Public Library launched a Mobile Library Law Center, the first of its kind in the country. Partnering with Maryland Legal Aid, the mobile unit provides free legal services directly in the community to targeted groups, such as individuals with disabilities, seniors, veterans, those with low income and the justice-involved.

Services provided are based upon a recognized need in our most underserved communities, reaching those who don’t have access to legal services, for reasons such as immobility, lack of access to public transportation or lack of financial means. The Mobile Library Law Center offers assistance with expungements and shielding, housing issues like evictions and foreclosures, social welfare benefits and disability issues, family law and custody matters and citizenship and immigration concerns.

Retrofitted to include two private meeting spaces plus all the necessary electronic equipment and internet access, the vehicle has a librarian available to work one-on-one with customers to provide general legal resources with a focus on immigration, education, social welfare and health care.
