Jan 16, 2024

On Tuesday, Jan. 16, at 5:30 p.m., the Wyomissing Public Library will welcome Attorney Donald Smith and District Justice Eric Taylor for a presentation about Landlord-Tenant Relations. The program, which is free and open to the public, is part of a monthly series presented by the library in partnership with Pennsylvanians for Modern Courts.

Pennsylvanians for Modern Courts (“PMC”) is a nonpartisan nonprofit that “envisions a Pennsylvania judicial system in which everyone who participates is assured impartiality, fairness, accessibility, and respect. The program on Jan. 16 will outline the various duties and obligations expected of both landlords and tenants and how to seek recourse when these obligations are not met. It will cover how a case gets to court, courtroom etiquette, what happens in the courtroom, and the documentation you need to support your legal position,” whether you are a tenant or a landlord.

Attorney Smith is the former executive director of the Berks County Bar Association. Since 2018, he has been a volunteer attorney with MidPenn Legal Services, where he originated the Eviction Prevention Pilot program. Eric Taylor is the Magisterial District Justice for Court 23-2-02, which covers West Reading and Wyomissing. District Justice courts are the first courts in the process of reconciling landlord-tenant disputes.

The program is free and open to the public. Registration is requested: email [email protected] or call the library at 610-37402385. The Wyomissing Public Library is located at 9 Reading Blvd., Wyomissing. On-street parking is available.
