 YOUNGSTOWN – The Public Library of Youngstown and Mahoning County (PLYMC) is teaming up with the Mahoning County Law Library and the Ohio Justice Bus, a mobile legal aid office, to assess the community’s legal needs. The Ohio Justice Bus is making an introductory visit to the Mahoning Valley to learn about the legal services residents want and need, so they can plan future legal clinics. The Ohio Justice Bus is also interested in speaking with local attorneys and paralegals about volunteer opportunities. 

When: Friday, November 19, 2021, 10am-1pm 
Where: Newport Library, 3730 Market St., Youngstown, OH 44507

The Mahoning County Law Library was established in 1904 and serves as a resource for the local legal community.  The Ohio Justice Bus is a mobile legal aid office that travels the state to host civil legal clinics in partnerships with legal aid and pro bono attorneys to provide legal services to Ohioans at no cost to clients.
