Downtown is busy with shopping, sporting events, restaurants, concerts, and Central Library! We want to make it as easy as possible for you to get to us. There is a large lot at Olive Street and 15th Street available for free parking for those using Central Library. A parking token is needed to raise the gates when exiting. Tokens are available at the Olive Street and Locust Street Issue Desks within Central Library. Check at either desk when you arrive.
If you are parking at a meter, the meters are monitored from 8am until 7pm Monday through Saturday. The meters accept nickels, dimes and quarters. Quarters are your best choice as they are good for 20 minutes. The meters are good for a maximum of 2 hours at a time. Please note this is a change as paying for meters on Saturday, in addition to Monday through Friday, is effective 7/1/2013
There are also numerous parking lots in the downtown area with various rates. See http://www.downtownstl.org/docs/ParkingGuide2012.pdf for a list.
If you have any questions, please call 314-241-2288 or Ask A Librarian
