History

The San Joaquin County Law Library is one of many California County Public Law Libraries. California County Law Libraries are public libraries providing FREE access to legal resources. California County Public Law Libraries were created by an act of California state legislators in 1891. In 2006, the Law Library relocated from the main courthouse in Downtown Stockton to the Kress Legal Center at 20 N. Sutter St. Stockton, CA 95202.

California County Public Law Libraries are funded by a portion of the civil court filing fees in the library’s home county. Law libraries do not receive tax dollars. Please support your local County Public Law Library.
