Law Library


The mission of the Danville Public Law Library is to provide a non-judgmental and professional atmosphere for researching legal issues. The library offers the general public and legal community print materials and access to an online legal database. 

The staff is here to serve our patrons but by law may not offer legal advice, opinions or interpretations of the law.
