Parking during Phase 1 Renovations
The Library's Phase 1 renovations of the Lower Level began Thursday 3/26, and will continue through Friday 5/1.  During that time period, parking in the Library's lot will be limited by a construction demo dumpster and porta-potty.  The Library does have agreements in place for parking our neighbor's lots: NH Automobile Dealer's Association (NHADA) and Bovie Screen Printing.  The parking available at NHADA is in the farthest back portion of their lot (go past the Library's parking lot entrance and take a left into the NHADA parking log, and then a quick right, following it to the end of the lot). The only days when this parking will not be available to us is Wednesday 4/15 and Wednesday 4/29, since NHADA has special meetings taking place on those mornings.  Please try to use open spaces at Bovie Screen Printings and the far lot in the NHADA parkingn lot BEFORE parking on Northeast Avenue.  If you have any questions or comments about the parking situation or the project itself, please contact Lori Fisher, Library Director, at 224-7113 or  Thank you in advance for your patience during the Phase 1 renovations!
