Libraries and Legal Issues

The popular Ask the Lawyer service which is sponsored by the Empire State Library Network is staffed by Buffalo attorney Stephanie (“Cole”) Adams, who first developed a deep connection to libraries working as a page, then clerk, at her hometown library in New Hartford, NY. Ms. Adams went on to work at the libraries of her Alma Maters, Hampshire College, and SUNY Buffalo School of Law.  She served for over 10 years as the in-house counsel at Niagara University, in Niagara Falls, NY.  An attorney admitted to practice in both the state and federal courts of New York, Ms. Adams has extensive experience with the issues confronting information professionals.  Ms. Adams works closely with WNYLRC and other library councils to craft useful replies to member library questions.  Stephanie will spend the day at the NCLS office in Watertown conducting workshops and hosting an open forum Q & A session.  We’ll put out a call for any legal questions you may have before the big event.
