Lawyer in the Library: Know Your Rights
August 17, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Hayner Public Library District is happy to announce our newest programming series: Lawyer in the Library. This series is a partnership between The Hayner Public Library District and Land of Lincoln Legal Aid. Land of Lincoln Legal Aid is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides low-income and senior residents of central and southern Illinois with free high-quality legal services to obtain and maintain their basic human needs.
Our Lawyer in the Library series will focus on three areas of law: housing, consumer protection, and health and income security. These “know your rights” presentations will provide a general overview of the types of help Land of Lincoln Legal Aid provides. Because the attorneys presenting these programs cannot discuss or answer questions concerning specific cases, attorney referrals and appointments can be made after each presentation.
The following programs will take place at Hayner Library at Alton Square Mall, from 7:00-8:00 p.m.:
• August 3, 2022 — Housing: eviction, unsafe living conditions, and foreclosure
• August 17, 2022 — Health and income security: Medicaid, Medicare, TANF, SNAP, Social Security
The following programs will take place at the Downtown Library from 6:00-7:00 p.m.:
• September 14, 2022 — Consumer Protection: debt collection, bankruptcy, consumer fraud, and identity theft
• September 28, 2022 — Housing: eviction, unsafe living conditions, and foreclosure
Registration is not required for these programs. For more information about Land of Lincoln Legal Aid, please visit www.lincolnlegal.org or call 1-800-642-5570 or (618) 462-0029. You may also pick up informational brochures at Hayner Library at Alton Square Mall or the Downtown Library.
