About the Law Library

Revised October 23, 2020

ASK A LIBRARIAN PHONE: 603-271-3777 / WEBSITE

Open by appointment. Curbside borrowing available.

Open By Appointment

The Law Library is reopening to the public by appointment on Monday, October 26, 2020. We will continue to offer curbside service to accommodate borrowers who would prefer not to come in to the Law Library. Visitors will be asked a series of screening questions by security and will be required to wear masks unless the wearing of masks would be contrary to their health or safety, and to comply with social distancing guidelines. Since the Law Library is located in the supreme court building, visitors should review the information at What to Know Before Coming to a New Hampshire Courthouse.

Appointments will be in 3-hour blocks from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and, for the present, only one visitor at a time will be allowed in the law library. 

Researchers wishing to make an appointment should call 603-271-3777 or email lawlibrary@courts.state.nh.us. You must give your name, phone number, and/or email so that we can contact you if needed.
