About the Cobb County Law Library
The Cobb County Law Library is on the Fourth Floor of Cobb County Superior Court, 70 Haynes St., Marietta. It is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
When the Cobb Law Library was first founded, it was primarily for the use of court officers, as described below, but that mission has expanded over time to include use by the public.
The Cobb County Law Libary website gives the following description of the library’s history and its mission:
The Cobb County Law Library was established in 1967. The Law Library is a division of Superior Court Administration.
Pursuant to state legislation, a Board of Trustees is responsible for making all rules and regulations governing the Law Library. Under the direction of the Board of Trustees and the Law Librarian, the Cobb County Law Library was created for the express “use of judges, solicitors, ordinaries and other officers of Cobb County” as a legal research facility. The Law Library is governed by O.C.G.A. 36-15-1 through 36-15-13.
The mission of the Cobb County Law Library is to provide a central location for accessible legal research. Resources include bound print publications, access to online legal research engines including Westlaw and LexisAdvance, and a collection of legal periodicals. The Library maintains a database record for all of its legal materials including those ordered and distributed to the Cobb County Judicial Circuit.
