Morning Mail: Old Law Books Find a Home
Editor’s Note: In August, we opined that in an age of electronic research, it can be hard to even give away old law books. The opinion piece drew a handful of comments and calls, including two attorneys we connected – one had a collection to give away, and another attorney had gaps in his collection he was glad to fill in.
We also recently heard from the Barrington Woman’s Club, which had accepted a donation of a large collection of old law books and eventually found a home for them:
Early in July, I made contact with the NH Bar Association about numerous law books dating back to the 1800s that we received as a donation for our annual yard sale, which benefits the Barrington Woman’s Club scholarship program.
We reached out for help from the Bar Association in hopes of finding a home/buyer. Although it did not produce any results, BWC greatly appreciated your efforts.
You may be interested to know the University of New Hampshire is offering law classes and were quite excited to accept the donated law books as reference material.
Thank you again for your interest in relocating old law books.
