Free access to electronic and printed resources include:
- Westlaw, the world's preferred online legal research service

Residents may book appointments with a law librarian for research assistance by calling 253-798-2691.
The Lakewood Library is open Monday to Thursday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday 1 to 5 p.m. People may access the law library kiosk during the same hours the full library is open.
“The Library’s partnership with Pierce County Law Library is another example of good government as we collaborate to make information and resources available to more people,” said Pierce County Library Executive Director Georgia Lomax. “Having this kiosk easily accessible in a public library brings legal resources to more people in a convenient place.”
