Fortunately, even though Yakima Valley Libraries staff aren’t qualified to provide you with legal advice, we’re more than able to help you find the information you need — and to do so, we’ve put together an extensive collection of online resources and in-person programs to help cut through the legalese and get you answers.

If you prefer a more do-it-yourself approach to legal guidance, you can explore our online legal reference services, or the print materials in our collection. Whether you need an updated rental agreement or just need help finding the right legal expert to handle a more complicated issue, we have you covered.
