The Barrett Branch Library does not have a parking lot. If you park in one of the neighboring lots, your car will be towed! The nearest "pay to park" lot is in the 100 block of Alfred Street (between King and Cameron) and if you come out the Columbus Street exit, you're about one block south of the library.
