      Parking
      Street Parking: You can usually find parking along the streets,
      especially on blocks north and east of the library. Check signs
      carefully to determine how long you can legally park and whether you
      might be in a zone that must be cleared during rush hour.
      Lot Parking: Please note that we have been unable to make arrangements
      to use the parking lot behind the library and the Wachovia Bank on the
      same block. You therefore should not park in that lot. If you choose to
      park in any other lot, you may be subject to ticketing and/or towing.
