Primary library parking is the parking lot North of our building, at the corner of 5th and Birch.  This parking lot includes 2 disabled parking spaces, which are closest to the door. The route from this parking lot to the North door has no steps or other barriers for those with mobility issues, mobility aids, or carts/baby strollers.  Overflow parking is along 4th Ave on the South side of the library.  

Library parking is marked in GREEN on the map below.   

Please note, the parking lot to the East of the library (next to the United Methodist Church) belongs to the church, not the library and we ask our visitors to please refrain from parking there.
