The Chelan County Law Library is located on the 5th floor of the Law and Justice Building. Pursuant to RCW 27.24.010, Chelan County is required to have and maintain a public law library. The importance of the law library has increased significantly due to an increase in the number of persons representing themselves in court. 

The library currently shelves various reference materials relating to Washington state law.  Additionally, there are four public access computer terminals with links to multiple legal research resources, including LoisLaw and Westlaw, as well as links to state and local law and justice-related information and forms.

The superior court employs a law clerk who also serves as the county librarian. The law clerk/librarian and other court staff is available to assist with reference questions, but cannot conduct research for litigants/members of the public.
