Public Transportation

Ample parking spaces are available at 200 Boston Avenue.

Accessible spaces are located at the main entrance of 200 Boston Avenue and at the right rear of the building at the loading dock. We recommend that you access the library through the entrance at the right rear across from Elizabeth Grady. That entrance opens close to the elevator and the elevator opens right at the Adult Services area. If you enter through the front door, you must come down a flight of stairs or follow the signs to the elevator at the rear of the building.
