The mission of the DuPage County Law Library is to provide legal information services to all licensed attorneys, judges, as well as members of the public. Our goal is to provide our patrons with accurate, up-to-date legal information. To achieve this
goal we are committed to tailoring the law library's collection to meet the needs of the legal community. The library currently maintains a core print collection of 26,000 volumes. The library also provides access to electronic databases and internet
resources for legal research. These materials include compilations of state and federal statutes, state and federal cases, digests, encyclopedias, regional reporters, treatises, forms and legal periodicals.
NOTE: Litigants representing themselves in court or performing research in the law library are advised NOT to bring electronic devices with them to the courthouse. Devices with cameras, such as smartphones and computers, will not be allowed
into the courthouse/library. Lockers are available on the first floor of the parking garage to store your valuables.
The library is located on the 2nd floor at the south end of the DuPage County Judicial Center. It overlooks the pond which provides a great view year round. Work and reading areas are located by the windows allowing for natural reading light. There is
seating available to over 40 persons. Each year upwards of 35,000-40,000 patrons use the library.
