Legal Resources Spotlighted At the Library

Sooner or later, almost everyone needs legal advice. 

The Downtown Library, 300 Park Avenue, in conjunction with the Oklahoma County Law Library, is presenting a series of monthly sessions designed to help you understand and locate the “Legal Resources at Your Library.”  The seminars will be held in the Friends Event Room on the 4th floor of the Downtown Library from 5:30 to 7:30pm on the last Monday of the month, beginning in July and running through October.

“No one should get their legal affairs in a mess,” said Downtown librarian Darlene Browers, “because they needed advice but didn’t know how to go about finding it.  Our programs will deal with Oklahoma guardianship laws, identity theft, starting and operating a business, and the legal expungement of records.  I’d like to encourage anyone to attend.  The sessions are for adults.”

The programs are free and open to the public.  For more information, call 606-3879 or 713-1353.

Schedule of sessions:

                Monday, July 27: Oklahoma Guardianship Laws

                Monday, August 31:  Preventing and Dealing With Identity Theft

                Monday, September 28:  Starting and Running a Business in Oklahoma
