PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - The Providence Public Library is hosting a series of events so people who cannot afford lawyers can speak with one.

The library is calling it “Lawyers in the Library.”

There will be a presentation each month, followed by an opportunity to speak with a lawyer about an issue related to that topic. The series is free and appointments aren’t necessary.

Supplemental Security Income and disability benefits will be discussed on January 23. Immigration rights will be discussed February 27, followed by tenant rights on March 27, employee rights on April 24 and special education law on May 22.

Each presentation is from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the library on Empire Street.

Spanish language attorneys or interpreters may be available.

The library suggests bringing written questions and any related paperwork.
