Welcome to the Licking County Library.


Licking County Law Library
The Licking County Law Library resides at the LCL Downtown Newark Library on the second floor. The county has provided two computers with access to the legal database LexixNexis. Additionally, the county provided furniture and its print collection.  All print materials have been cataloged and are now able to be viewed on the LCL online catalog. They have also been merged with the LCL’s current reference law books. Professional librarians of LCL have been trained in basic searching on the database, but cannot give legal advice.
