The state of Nevada has announced the launch of the Legal Kiosk project at 22 libraries across Nevada with the intent of making information available to older Nevadans, underserved communities, and all those with questions.
The Legal Kiosk project is led by project manager Susan Myers, Esq. of Nevada Legal Services to address the digital divide which disproportionately affects communities, especially seniors who lack the means to use technology to access the legal system.
Legal kiosks are designed to be a user-friendly portal for Nevadans to learn about civil legal issues, find court information and forms, access legal aid providers, locate community resources, and attend virtual court hearings.
The legal kiosks provide curated information on topics including housing, divorce and custody, protection orders, guardianship, healthcare and financial powers of attorney, debt collection, social security, and veterans’ resources.
Legal kiosks can be found at the Carson City Library, the Lyon County Library in Dayton, Fernley, Silver Stage, Smith and Yerington and the Churchill County Library in Fallon.
