Kern Law Library

Contact Us

You should expect a response to your call or email if you leave a clear message detailing the reason for your inquiry. 

Please provide clear contact information and a summary of the reason for your call if you dial us at (661) 868-5320.  If you hang up without leaving a message, you will not receive a call back.

Please be sure to give as much detail as possible if you contact us via email at  The more information we have in an email inquiry, the better.

Though the law librarian will make his best attempt to respond within one business day of your calls or emails, the Kern County Law Library is operating with limited staff and cannot guarantee a timeframe in which you may expect a response.

If you are experiencing an emergency, do not wait for a response from the Kern County Law Library.

If you believe you may be in danger, you should dial 911 right away.

If you are in need of legal advice, please note that the staff of the Kern County Law Library may never give legal advice – only information.   You may consider visiting if you would like to browse listings of local attorneys who work in the field(s) of law in which you need advice.
