The People’s Law Library of Iowa is a new online resource that provides easy to understand information on some of Iowa’s laws. The website includes information on consumer law, family law, and landlord/tenant law, as well as guidance on researching legal issues, a glossary or more than 100 legal terms, and more.
This new resource is made possible by the State Library’s portion of the American Rescue Plan Act and the University of Iowa Law Library who gathered the content while the State Library provided administrative support and contracting for the website. This partnership has been extended to allow The People’s Law Library website to grow with additional information.
Inviting all ghosts, ghouls, goblins, superheroes, and creatures alike! Stop by the Milford Memorial Library on Monday, October 31, from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., to pick up some treats and show off your awesome costume.
