The Liberty Lane entrance to the library parking lot will be closed for crosswalk repair on Thursday, October 18th and Friday, October 19th. The library will remain open during this time. Patrons may enter the library parking lot via the exit on Independence Way. We ask that caution be exercised when using this exit for entering the library parking lot for it requires a very sharp turn. Patrons may also park along Liberty Lane. We apologize for the inconvenience.
