Parking Information
Please park in the parking deck adjacent to the library on 2nd street.  Use the entrance with the guard gate and press the button to receive a green parking deck ticket; before leaving the building everyone can get a pink validated ticket from the administration office so they are not charged. Park on the third level and use that building entrance as that is the meeting room level. The only other access point from the deck is on the first floor, which would be easier for anyone who isn't able to climb a half flight of stairs.

Do not use the first floor parking deck entrance without a guard gate as after two hours one will be ticketed. If anyone uses that section because of the stairs ask them to speak to administration about arrangements when they arrive at the meeting.
