County Law Libraries in California are Public Libraries, free and open to the judiciary, to state and county officials, to members of the State Bar, and to all residents and nonresidents of California, for the examination of books and other printed materials, for provision of access to photocopiers and printers and to online resources. The mission of a Law Library is to provide free and equal access to the Rule of Law. The Tehama County Law Library is dedicated to supplying the best possible free access to legal materials through hard copy holdings, electronic media, and supporting services, within the scope of funds available, to the public and legal community.
The Tehama County Law Library was organized under the provisions of the Act of the Legislature of the State of California, entitled, "An Act to Establish Law Libraries". This act was approved on March 21, 1891. Through this act each county was given the authority to pass an ordinance establishing a county law library. The state act was subsequently codified in the California Business and Professions Code Sections 6300 et seq. Each county, unless excepted, must have at least one law library, located at the county seat. The Tehama County Law Library is just one of more than fifty public law libraries in California. Historical data as to when Tehama County passed an ordinance creating the Tehama County Law Library is not readily available and is under research. The earliest meeting minutes kept on record, in the Law Library, is dated March 2, 1897.
The Law Library is governed by a Board of Trustees representing the bench, bar and citizens of the county, and establishes all library policies. Appointments are made by the Tehama County Superior Court and Board of Supervisors.
We are located in the Red Bluff branch of the Tehama County Library. Reference assistance is available during these hours. We also provide limited reference assistance over the phone and by email. We strive to provide the appropriate resources to meet the community’s legal information needs. Our goal is to provide the best resources possible, so everyone may have equal access to justice. The majority of the library budget is used to ensure that the public has access to California and Federal case and statutory law. Staff willingly provides assistance in utilizing the collection both online and in print.
