The Grays Harbor County Law Library is located in the Sheriff's Office building. Pursuant to RCW 27.24.010, Grays Harbor 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 is a public access computer terminal with links to multiple legal research resources,  as well as links to state and local law and justice-related information and forms.

The Superior Court Administrator also serves as the county librarian. The law librarian is available to assist with reference questions, but cannot conduct research for litigants/members of the public.
