10:00 am - 11:15: Alabama Supreme Court & State Law Library: Its Past, Its Present, and Its Future (?)   
     The Supreme Court Library is the oldest law library in Alabama and the first library in Alabama  created by legislative enactment.  In 1887, Library Journal listed the Supreme Court Library as Alabama’s largest with 17,626 volumes. Founded in 1828, over the past 185 years the Law Library has suffered fire, secession, invasion by hostile soldiers, the ravages of technological change, yet still serves the Courts, the Bar, and the People of Alabama. This program will explore the Law Library’s rich past, its present state (including a tour of the Law Library), and what the future holds.
