Legal Help Kiosk at the Walton & Tipton Township Public Library
A Legal Help Kiosk is housed at the Walton & Tipton Township Public Library, 110 N. Main Street, thanks to a partnership between the Indiana Bar Foundation and the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority.
The kiosk, which features self-help forms for housing legal issues such as evictions, provides users with a computer, scanner, and printer for internet searches, form downloads, and legal case searches. Users also can enter their zip code or select their county from a drop-down list to get a listing of free legal aid organizations in their area and free clinics they can attend to meet with an attorney either virtually or in person. Kiosk users can also find self-help court forms, such as the eviction sealing form, that can be filled out and printed directly from the kiosk. Hoosiers with questions about eviction or other housing legal issues can also use the kiosks to connect with a legal navigator through the kiosk chat feature. Users also will have access to instructional videos and a statewide calendar of free legal advice clinics. The kiosk is open to the public during regular library hours – 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. The library is closed Sunday and Monday. For more information, please call the Walton Library at (574) 626-2234 or visit IndianaLegalHelp.org.
