Construction on the new City Hall and the 2nd Street Flood Control Project** east of the downtown Main Library continues. Here are the updates regarding the library:
The Library/Civic Center parking lot: As of today (11/7), the Civic Center/Library parking lot along the east side of 3rd Street North (east of the Main Library) now has approximately 88 parking spots available for library patrons. These spots have a 3-hour time limit in order to accommodate as many library patrons as possible each day. Five handicapped parking spots are also available in this lot.
Main Library's west parking lot: The library's west parking lot along 4th Street North has 13 parking spots available for library patrons. These spots have a 3-hour time limit in order to accommodate as many library patrons as possible each day. Handicapped parking is also available in the library's west lot.
Temporary parking lot between the Main Library and the Civic Center: Approximately 35 new parking spaces are available in this lot including handicapped parking spots. This lot is helping to ensure sufficient parking is available for Fargo Public Library patrons and City Hall visitors during the construction of the new Fargo City Hall. Careful consideration was made to preserve existing trees and monuments in this area.
** Pedestrians are asked to use caution when crossing streets and avenues while the construction projects are underway.
Please note: It is business as usual for the Main Library and staff in terms of hours, events and programs.
During the construction project, pedestrian access to the Main Library will remain the same. Entrances are located along 3rd Street on the east, and along 4th Street on the west side of the Main Library.
We are apologize for any inconvenience.
