Parking & Getting Here

To access the Library’s parking lot turn off of West High Street into the municipal parking lot. The Library lot will be to your left, parking in the Library lot is free while you are using the Library. During special events, this space is reserved for vehicles with handicap placards.

If the Library lot is full, there is plenty of parking available in the municipal metered parking lots (see the map below). Elizabethtown Borough meters are 5¢ per hour. Some meters will take nickels and dimes (two hour time limit), others will also take quarters (five hour time limit).

There are additional municipal parking lots located within two blocks of the Library. Some of these lots offer free parking.

There is a limited amount of street parking available in front of the Library. Most of these meters have a two hour limit.

If you are so unfortunate, as much of the Library Team has been, to receive a parking ticket from the borough you may pay your parking fine in the yellow box located near the front of the Coffee Company on the sidewalk. Currently parking tickets are $10.
