Directions to the Library
Near the Calaveras Blvd. overpass, northwest side.
If heading WEST, take the Main St. offramp on the east side of the railroad overpass. Head STRAIGHT through the light, when green, into the Library parking garage.
If heading EAST, take the Carlo Street exit just before the overpass, turn LEFT on N. Main St. At the next light, turn RIGHT into the Library’s parking garage. (You could also continue on Carlo St. and just before it ends, take a left and head straight into the other entrance to the parking garage. You will most likely also use this way to get out of the library.) Map.
