Free Downtown Parking 101

If you thought there was no such thing as free parking downtown, read on!

Feeding the meters is never fun, even when you can use the new ones that accept ATM and credit cards, so here are some free parking options for Central Library users:
  • Street parking is free after 6 p.m. Central Library is open Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays until 8 p.m. Visit us in the evening - avoid the daytime crowd and get more personalized service!
  • Street parking is free all day on Sundays and holidays. Central Library is open Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. Upside: Central is open on some holidays. Downside: Sunday is our busiest day, but there is usually extra staff at the service desks.
  • Saturday parking is free for library users at two city parking garages: at 10th & I, and at 10th & L (but not in the US Bank garage at 8th & J.) Bring your parking ticket into the library and staff will stamp it and give you a voucher to cover the $5 fee.
  • The Jury parking lot at 8th & G is free on Saturdays and Sundays.
Experience the difference it makes when you don't have to worry about the time!

It seems like there's something new on the SPL website everyday. It used to be so easy to just login to my account and not really look at the front page. Thank you for distracting me and for prodding me to notice something different (and pointing out the free parking options, too) today!!
