PARKING INFO

Metro government is modernizing the parking garage adjacent to the Main Library. The project began late June 2016. Approximately 360 spaces will be added, and other improvements will be made to the garage. Seventy-five parking spaces are temporarily closed for the duration of construction. Project completion is expected in spring of 2018.

Due to the temporary parking space decrease and temporary lane closures, please allow extra time when planning to visit during peak hours or for special events.
