The Library has two handicap accessible parking spaces on the Katharine Lee Bates side of the building. These spaces are closest to elevator access within the building. The Katharine Lee Bates entrance is at street level.

There is a larger handicap accessible parking space for vans in the library parking lot off Shore Street extension.  From this location you can enter either the Katharine Lee Bates entrance or from Main Street. A ramp provides access to the Main Street side of the building.
