West Law books now at Benton Library Branch

Recently the entire collection of West Law books was transferred from the Bossier Central Library to the Benton branch, which is located by the Bossier Parish Courthouse. Attorneys and patrons will now have quick access to the books, and the Central branch has extra space in the book stacks.

Not only does the library provide current West Law legal information in print, we also have Legal Forms Library by Gale available online at www.bossierlibrary.org . “Gale is the most extensive free forms site available to library patrons.”

There are thousands of forms such as Official, State Specific, Federal, Business, Personal, Real Estate, and General forms. Technical Services manager Teresa Rice says, “Many of these forms are fill-in-the-blank or can be modified by an attorney.”

This service is free to the public with a current valid library card. Access the site from home or anywhere there is an Internet connection. (Library staff cannot provide legal advice or referrals to an attorney.)

Book it to the Bossier Libraries for legal forms.
