Patrons to Pay to Park at Renovated Central Library
A brief public ceremony followed by an afternoon of special activities for all ages will highlight the Grand Opening of the newly-transformed Central Library, 40 East St. Clair Street, Indianapolis, from 1-5 p.m. on Sunday (9 December). Following the dedication, citizens will get their first look at such features as the high-tech Learning Curve for children and families, the Indianapolis Special Collections Room, the restored Reading Room in the Cret Building, the expansive Computer Training Lab, and a collection of over 700,000 books and audio-visual materials. Library staff will be available to help guide patrons throughout the new 293,000-square-foot facility. In addition to the south entrance of the Cret Building, there are public doors on 9th Street and from the new underground parking garage, located on Pennsylvania Street, immediately south of 9th Street. Parking in Central Library’s garage will be free on Grand Opening Day – which obviously signals that parking in that garage will NOT be free on any other day. Boo, hiss! says this Indianapolis Observer, who enjoyed the free parking in the lots next to the un-transformed Central Library.
