Public Access Law Libraries | NYCOURTS.GOV

Legal information includes laws, court cases, and other materials that build and expand on the laws of New York State.

This means you do not need to visit an Access Canberra Service Centre for any other services.

We have also introduced a dedicated quiet period between 9 and 11am, to support vulnerable Canberrans and those with English as a second language who may not have access to our online services or who need assistance to do so.

If you believe you need to visit an Access Canberra Service Centre please call 13 22 81 before doing so.
