We do our best to ensure that library parking is being used by library patrons! Library parking is limited and available on a first come, first served basis, so please only use our lot while you are in the Library building or you may be towed. Note: Please find alternative parking for any programs held outside of the Library, including the Read It, Watch It movie series at The State Theatre. Ask us for our Downtown Parking map if you need suggestions!
