The law library and help center at the Peoria County Courthouse is officially re-opened following nearly $33,000 in renovations. Michael Brandt is the Chief Judge of the 10th Judicial Circuit. He says the renovations helped make it easier for people to use legal resources:
Brandt says the library still has bookshelves on the center’s upper level. The center also has new paint and new carpet. Brandt says people who use the law library and self-help center don’t need to be experts in law. He says the center is always staffed with an attorney to answer questions.
