The closure will be in place for up to 10 days. Access to the downtown Main Library and City Hall will still be available from the north via 3rd Avenue North and 3rd Street.

1st Avenue North & 4th Street North sidewalk project: The sidewalk along 1st Ave. North (located on the south side of the Main Library) is closed and under construction to update underground cabling. This project is expected to last approximately two months.

It is business as usual for the Main Library and staff in terms of hours, events and programs.

During the sidewalk project and 3rd Street 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. 

Parking for the Main Library during the sidewalk project will be in the Library/Civic Center parking lot along the east side of 3rd Street.

** Pedestrians are asked to use caution when crossing streets and avenues while the construction project is underway.

We will provide updated information with regard to pedestrian and parking access to events at the downtown Main Library as this construction project continues.
