Court and County Law Libraries who are funded by filing fees have been confronting shrinking budgets for years (see AALL: Explore Funding Opportunities for Law Libraries Task Force Report of 2000 https://www.aallnet.org/Archived/Leadership-Governance/committees/task-force-report.html  and Sonoma County’s more recent http://sonomacountylawlibrary.org/About-Us/Library-Funding/).  While many avenues have been explored, one option is for a county law library to partner with its local public library.  The Hennepin County Law Library entered into a verbal agreement with the Hennepin County Library in 2014; hired a new law library director in 2015 and approved a written cooperative agreement with the county in 2017.  The benefits to both parties are many and will be discussed in detail by the two library directors.
