Tap In Center at St. Louis County Library - For help with your St. Louis County criminal case

St. Louis County Library is partnering with several justice involved organizations to provide a Tap In Center at two branches for individuals to get legal assistance and connect with local support services during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Tap In Center is open every Tuesday from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at the Florissant Valley Branch, and the first Tuesday of the month from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at the Lewis and Clark Branch

Individuals can show up in person, call 314-669-6185 or email for assistance.

The Tap In Center is a member of the St. Louis Community Information Exchange, a coordinated care network of health and social service providers. Complete an intake form so we can learn how to best assist you.

At the Tap In Center, individuals can meet with an attorney, learn their case status and court date information; apply for a public defender; connect with local services through the Bail Project; enroll in a program to receive court reminders, and get assistance navigating the court process during COVID-19. Access to the Library’s free wi-fi is also available to Tap In Center clients.

Pretrial Support Services are available from the Bail Project, including: court reminders, transportation and employment assistance. Show up in person, call or email to sign-up for pretrial support.

Individuals visiting the Tap In Center will be required to follow COVID-19 safety precautions.
