The Nashville Public Library is known for its artwork, public programs and special events. In 1998, prior to the passage of the city’s percent for public art ordinance, the Nashville Public Library chose to allocate $600,000 of its construction budget to public art. Artists were selected through national and local calls for artists by a collaborative process involving the Library, Architect Robert A.M. Stern, a project manager, an art design review committee, and the Metro Nashville Arts Commission. As a result, Nashville’s Main Library includes integrated public artworks, posters created by local artists, and photographs by local photographers, all of which enhance the library user’s experience of this beautiful modern classical building.

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.
