Library Law

Whether you are an existing library in need of independent legal representation, or a community or group seeking to establish a new library, our Library Law practice can help.

The laws of the State of Michigan provide multiple mechanisms for establishment, each with its own rules of governance and finance. From libraries established and governed by local municipalities, to city, village and township libraries operating under state statute, or district libraries spanning municipal boundaries, we can help you navigate the path to legal establishment, recognition and state aid. Once established, we can assist you in all matters ranging from municipal relations, governance and finance to shared services agreements, transaction and contract review, policy and procedure.
