BEMIDJI — The Bemidji Public Library is partnering with Legal Services of Northwest Minnesota to bring the Justice Bus to the library from 10 a.m. to noon on the fourth Thursday of each month. The bus will be at the library this month on Oct. 27.

The Justice Bus is part of Reach Justice Minnesota, a series of initiatives that leverage technology to provide free, non-criminal legal services to the state of Minnesota, a release said.

The bus is staffed by Legal Services of Northwest Minnesota and provides the community members with legal advice on housing, family, elder and disability law, work, unemployment, money/debt, taxes and abuse victims.

There is no appointment needed and no cost to use the services.

Legal aid cannot advise on criminal, traffic, or malpractice cases, the release said.

Our newsroom sometimes reports stories under the byline "Pioneer Staff Report." This byline is used when reporters rewrite basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as an email or press release that requires little or no reporting.

Other times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
