Happy National Library Week!

If books are knowledge you can hold in your hand, then the hefty tomes of the law are knowledge you can best hold in the crook of your arm…or perhaps a sturdy bag! With the kickoff of National Library Week on April 4, you can now get a free canvas bookbag with every checkout at our libraries. (While supplies last.) 

Bookbag and books 

This National Library Week we're opening up our Lexis bookbags and talking about what you can read at our libraries. 

Print Books

In his book On Writing, Steven King posits that, "books are a uniquely portable magic." This is certainly true of law books, which hold everything from primary law to analysis to extremely specific and wonderfully time-saving sample forms. Browse through this list of some of our many Lexis-published books in our catalog

Check out these standalone, recently added books:

  • Exculpatory evidence: the accused's constitutional right to introduce favorable evidence
  • Veterans benefits manual
  • What's it worth? a guide to personal injury awards and settlements

Lexis Advance

Supplementing our print offerings, get free access to Lexis Advance to Shepardize citations, research case law, and find journals or books including Nichols on eminent domain and Appleman on insurance. Use Lexis Advance on public computers at the David T. Prosser Jr. Library.  

Lexis Digital Library 

eBooks are easy to hold in your hand, and you can use them on any device. We've gone digital with eBook versions of popular Lexis titles.
