Trial Court partners with Chelsea Public Library to provide public access to court services


The Trial Court announced this week that it has partnered with the Chelsea Public Library to provide the public with access to virtual court resources and services at the library.

The program, a Massachusetts Trial Court Access to Justice initiative, will provide visitors with access to computer terminals and the internet to search for court resources, such as interpreter services, legal aid, case information and more. Additionally, visitors will be able to contact the virtual court help desk, use library computers and printers to access and print court forms, and use designated library spaces for virtual court hearings. Some court departments have remote services available via a virtual front counter.

The Chelsea Public Library is located at 569 Broadway, Chelsea. The library’s summer hours are Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday: 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., Thursday 9 a.m. – 8 p.m., Friday 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., and Saturday 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. Information regarding resources offered via the library will be available on the library’s website. Those with questions about the offered resources or who would like to make an appointment to get extra help can contact the library at (617) 466-4350.
