Downtown Construction Update

Road Closures Around the Main Library

Projects happening around the Main Library will impact road and parking access in the surrounding areas now through 2023. Starting in early October, 8th Street will be closed to through traffic between River Street and the Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial as a crew works on water and geothermal lines.

Planning Your Trip to the Main Library

With construction happening in the area surrounding the Main Library, please make sure to plan accordingly:

  • Leave extra time to find parking and navigate closed roadways.
  • Walk, bike, or scooter, if possible.
  • Consider picking up your holds at one of our neighborhood branch locations.

Inside the Main Library

Starting in 2023, there will be construction projects inside the Main Library on Capital Boulevard to bring the building up to compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) as well as to address some of the building’s maintenance needs. We will provide updates to the website throughout the construction.
