Press release

SYRACUSE: An Indiana legal aid kiosk for tenants and renters facing eviction is now available at the Syracuse-Turkey Creek Township Public Library.

Indiana Legal Help Kiosks provide a way for Indiana residents to easily access indianalegalhelp.org, a program of the Indiana Bar Foundation that connects Indiana residents with legal resources and services. Through the kiosk, you can access housing-related legal information and resources, including a calendar of legal aid events focused on scheduled evictions in our area, and find free or low-cost legal help. The ADA accessible kiosk also includes a printer and scanner.

To use the kiosk, visit the library during its regular hours of 10 am to 6 pm Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and noon to 8 pm Tuesday and Thursday. Also, the library is open on Saturdays from 10 am to 2 pm. The Indiana Legal Aid Kiosk is made possible by a partnership between the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority and the Indiana Bar Foundation. For housing and other legal needs, check out the legal resources available at indianalegalhelp.org.
