The small parking lot closest to Main St will be closed on Monday, 11/20/17, beginning at 11:00 AM. Staff will be on hand to monitor traffic until the pour is complete. Traffic in and out of the lot will be affected for brief periods by the arrival and departure of cement trucks, beginning about 2:00 PM and lasting until around 5:00 PM.
Effective immediately the current walkway to the front entrance is CLOSED. The ONLY way to enter the library is to walk down the sidewalk on N. Main St until you reach the building. Then turn right & follow the path to the front door. No access is provided from N. Elm St.
The Library can only be accessed using the fenced walkway directly in front of the building. Please park in the newly paved lots directly in front of the building in order to easily access this walkway.
The N. Elm St entrance closest to the building will be closed beginning Monday, 10/23/17. Both this is entrance & the N. Main St entrance closest to the building that has been closed for a few weeks now will remain closed until the completion of the construction project.
Customers can access the parking lot at entrances located on N. Main St next to Krispy Kreme, and from N. Elm St near the Dummit Fraden Law Offices. Temporary paving at the rear and in the middle of the lot has been completed, providing ample parking during construction. Seven spaces closest to the building in the middle lot are available for customers requiring accessible parking.
The drive-through book drops and holds pick-up window will be unavailable beginning on Monday, 10/23/17 as well. Customers may return materials and pick up holds inside the Library and at two remote locations: the Parks & Recreation Administration Office at 136 Northpoint Avenue on Monday – Friday from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., and at the Deep River Recreation Center at 1529 Skeet Club Road on Monday – Friday from 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. Materials may also be returned to the High Point Museum at 1859 E. Lexington Av on Tuesday – Saturday from 10:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Holds pick-up is not available at the Museum.
On Monday, 10/2/17, the N. Main St entrance closest to the building will be closed as construction moves to this area.
The newly-paved area in the middle of the lot will be available for parking, and accessible from N. Main St and N. Elm St entrances near Krispy Kreme & the law offices. Handicap parking will be located in the new lot closest to the library.
On Monday, 10/16/17, the N. Elm St entrance closest to the building will be closed. The N. Main St entrance will remain closed through the remainder of construction.
The drops and drive-through window will be inaccessible. Materials may be returned & holds picked up inside the Main Library, at Deep River Recreational Center (1529 Skeet Club Rd), and Parks & Recreational headquarters (136 Northpoint Av). Only materials may be returned at the High Point Museum (1859 E. Lexington Av).
8/2/17 UPDATE- The part of the parking lot by the Krispy Kreme is striped and available for parking. At the moment the only entrance/exit is from North Main, but the North Elm entrance should be open and the sidewalk repaired by the middle of next week.
7/19/17 UPDATE- A large portion of the parking lot will be unavailable beginning Friday, July 21, as construction crews move into the next stage of the renovation project. Approximately two-thirds of the parking area on the North Main side will be fenced in while infrastructure is installed and the permanent market stalls are constructed. The drive running in front of the building that is accessed from North Main Street and North Elm Street will remain open (during this particular part of the project. It will have to be closed at some point.)
The work on the north end of the lot nearest Krispy Kreme is approaching completion and will be temporarily paved and striped in the next few weeks. This will allow customers to park there while the rest of the project is underway. Signage will be in place to inform the public when that area is available.
The Farmers Market will continue to take place during the construction. This Saturday, July 22, it will be moved to the back fence. Next week, it will probably be in the bank parking lot – we’ll let you know more as things progress.
4/17/17 UPDATE- Until further notice the drives closest to the building from N. Main Street and N. Elm Street are the only two entrances into the library parking lot.
4/12/17 UPDATE- The only entrance to the Library parking lot off Main St. is the one closest to the building.
The BNC Bank parking lot on Elm St. and the small Library parking lot on Sunset Dr. will be available for parking during the renovation.
