The Madera County Superior Court announced the launch of kiosks that provide visitors fluent in English or Spanish with a map directory of the courthouse.


The kiosks (also known as ‘wayfinding kiosks’) were made available through a grant from the State of California and will help visitors pinpoint their location within the courthouse and then access internal directions to specific services, departments or divisions.


Visitors will also be able to access the location and contact information for various government agencies and services within the community, including the library, post office and nearby ATM locations.


The Madera County Superior Court hopes these kiosks help visitors, especially those who are Spanish-speaking only, to easily navigate throughout the courthouse and find the information they need to conduct business efficiently.
