In a Rush?!? Use one of our 15 minute only express parking spots by our Colburn St. Entrance


Our tireless custodian Ray Destrempe unloads the outside book drop next to the newly installed white sign designating the first of two 15 Minute parking spots on Colburn Street. You can just make out the sign for the other 15 minute parking area in the distance on the other side of the Loading Zone.

Good news! We’ve got express parking! Just in time for the final holiday rush there are two new 15 minute only parking spaces at either end of the loading zone in front of our Colburn St. entrance. So if you just need to stop in real quick to pick something up or drop something off you don’t have to find a spot in our little lot in front of the Fire station. There is also a second handicapped spot near the corner of Merrimack and Colburn which is great for those who need.

If you are staying for longer than 15 minutes you can park in our 2 hour library patron lot in front of the Fire Station on the corner of Moody & Colburn St. For longer visits, the Ayotte Garage (near the Tsongas Center) is the closest. Though, the John Street and Market Street garages are also within walking distance of the library and are more centrally located in downtown for all your local shopping and eating pleasure.
