The Evanston Public Library underground parking garage will be closed for repairs from Tuesday, June 6, through Sunday, July 9.

The closure is for the planned continuation of repairs to the garage that began last summer.

The garage will re-open at 9 a.m. on Monday, July 10.

Library officials suggest patrons use the parking lot east of the building or the Church Street garage as alternatives while the library garage is closed.

  1. Library Garage?

    I’ve been a regular patron for years and I had no idea our library has a parking garage. I’d love to know where the entry is.

    1. Entry is off Orrington

      The entry is off Orrington Avenue, directly across the street from the Orrington Hilton Hotel. It’s a great place to park when you want to go to the library on a rainy day.
