Project Story

The new Harris County Law Library is located on the first floor of Congress Plaza at 1019 Congress.

The 16,000 square foot library will be more accessible to the general public and offers pro bono legal services via an arrangement with the Houston Bar Association.

In addition to space for computer kiosks and easily navigable stacks and resources, the new law library has a coffee bar for library patrons.
