Driving Directions

Please note: it is not recommended that you use the library address in a GPS system to locate the Central Branch. Doing this will not take you to the parking lot, and there are several one-way streets to contend with. Instead, please follow the driving directions below:

  • Exit at Trafalgar Rd.
  • Head south on Trafalgar Rd.
  • Turn right on Dunn St. (one way)
  • Turn right on Randall St. (one way)
  • Turn right on Navy St. at lights
  • Navy St. becomes Water St. as you turn the corner and head down the hill towards the water
  • Library entrance is at second parking lot on your left.
