Keep law library open -- since the state won't

Steven M. Cohen writes "From Palm Beach Post:"The public law library at the Palm Beach County Judicial Center could close by October if county commissioners don't come up with $300,000. Once again, the county will have to pay for a public service that is the state's responsibility.

The library, though available to judges and lawyers, is primarily a resource for the growing number of people who cannot afford to hire a lawyer or for other reasons choose to represent themselves. From the main courthouse in West Palm Beach, to satellite offices in Palm Beach Gardens and Delray Beach, the library draws people from beyond Palm Beach County's borders."
