  1. Accessible Parking: There are 4 accessible parking spaces to the left of the Main Entrance on the south side of the building. There are no curbs around these spaces. There is room for wheelchairs and scooters to enter and exit vehicles.
  2. Entrance Ramp:

    There is a ramp to library entrance along the wall from the accessible parking area. You'll be moving upward and turning left to reach the entrance, and to the right and downward when leaving.
  3. Waiting Bench:

    A bench in front of the ramp allows a comfortable wait for transport when the weather is good. A pull-out for vehicles and a curb cut give easy access to your ride.
  4. Public Access Scooter: On entering the library, the first service desk you come to is the circulation desk, where books are checked out and returned, overdue fines are paid, and library cards are made. The library's public access scooter is parked across from the circulation desk, to your left as you enter the library. You may ask at this desk for the scooter key. 
  5. Reference Desk:

    At the the Reference Desk in the center of the first floor you can ask questions and get help in finding, reaching, and using anything in the library.

    Entrances to the elevator and stairs face the reference desk in the center of the library.

    Large Print books are shelved on the north wall of the library. This wall also features windows looking out on the harbor.
  9. Children's Desk:

    At the Children's Desk in the southeast corner of the library you can ask questions and get help in finding, reaching, and using anything in the Children's Room. The Children's Room is on the first floor, in the east side of the library.  That's to your right as you pass the Circulation Desk after entering.
  10. Emergency Exits:

    Emergency exit doors all have ramps. In an emergency please use the nearest exit.  Exits are located in the adult reading area at the Northwest corner, in the children's area near the Children's Service Desk, and at the main entrance which is central on the south wall.  Except for the main entrance, the doors feature alarms and are for use only in emergencies.
