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.
Individuals can show up in person, call 314-669-6185 or email TapInSTL@gmail.com for assistance.
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.
This unique partnership brings together the St. Louis County Library, the Missouri State Public Defender’s Office, The Bail Project, MacArthur Foundation Safety & Justice Challenge, University of Missouri-St. Louis, and the St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.
