COVID-19 Update: The Library has reopened. Please access the library via the doors at Courtroom Three. 

The Peterborough Law Association was incorporated on November 12th, 1879 under the Ontario Library Associations and Mechanics Institutes Act. "The purpose shall be the formation of a law library for the use of its members and the taking cognizance of all matters relating to the welfare of the legal profession in the Town and County of Peterborough."

The Association not only sought to create a Library, but to concern itself with the welfare of its membership, a social and regulatory purpose quite apart from the ownership and operation of a Law Library. The By-Laws of the Association set out in detail the officers, membership, meetings, fees and general provisions.

All practicing lawyers within the Peterborough area are eligible to join.  If you are a lawyer who wishes to join the Association, please contact us.
