Law Library Enters Phase 3 Re-Opening

March 11, 2021

The Fort Bend County Law Library will reopen to the general public on Monday, March 15. A limited number of visitors will be allowed into the Law Library at a time, as determined by the reduced capacity requirements. To limit the possibility of exposure, visitors are required to conduct library business and exit the premises in a timely manner.

Visitors who enter the Fort Bend County Justice Center, where the Law Library is located, are required to wear a mask and follow all social-distancing guidelines.

Steps to enter the Justice Center:
1.    Go through security at the main entrance;
2.    Walk to the information desk where your temperature will be taken and you will receive a wrist band;
3.    Proceed to the 2nd floor; the Law Library is located in Room 20714.

Because library capacity is limited and to limit the possibility of exposure, visitors are required to conduct library business and exit the premises in a timely manner so that everyone can safely social distance and other visitors may have access to the library. Conference rooms are not available.

During Phase 3, visitors to the Law Library will be able to:

  • Use computers and printers (limited use);
