North Dakota Supreme Court Law Library remodeling begins after 67,000 books culled

Staff of the North Dakota Supreme Court Law Library have been discarding more than 67,000 books over the span of more than a year.


“I can tell you, it’s been devastating to see them go, but we understand the impetus,” Legal Self-Help Center Director Catie Palsgraaf said.


The 2019 Legislature budgeted $970,000 to remodel the library in phases for judicial branch information technology staff, Supreme Court staff attorneys and the Self-Help Center for the general public.
