Law Day @ McArthur Library

Thursday, May 1st

6 pm - 8 pm

Attorneys Jennifer G. Hayden and Andrea Bopp Stark from Molleur Law will be presenting at McArthur Library. Attendees will learn how to access lawyers and courts, an overview of legal and court system, and general information on referrals, resources and answers to basic questions on legal issues.

Lawyers in Libraries is an initiative of the Maine Justice Action Group and a statewide event held by lawyers and public libraries throughout Maine.

The first 10 people who pre-register (at the Circulation Desk of McArthur Library) will have approximately 5-10 minutes of individual time with Jennifer or Andrea to ask questions.
