Library Blog

The American Bar Association has designated October as National Pro Bono Celebration Month. What a perfect time to point a spotlight on a fine local effort and partnership that Anne Arundel County Public Library is proud to be involved with! For the past four years, the AACPL has maintained a unique partnership with the Anne Arundel County Public Law Library (AACPLL) that offers free legal counseling to county residents. This monthly program, the brainchild of AACPLL Director, Joan Bellistri, has quietly and steadily made a positive impact within our library community, especially for residents of the northern part of the county.
