New Short Term Parking  
Fall brings cooler days and nights, and the return to school year routines. This means increased parking demands on the library lot, too! In order to help alleviate parking lot congestion during the busy weekday morning periods, the city is installing 11 new 30-minute parking spaces in front of the library. These will help patrons who need to make a quick trip into the library find a parking spot more easily, especially during busy morning hours.
