The entrance from the parking lot will be under construction from June 26-August 31, 2024.

Please follow signs to safely enter the building. Parking may be limited. (Schedule subject to change without notice)

Plan Your Visit

Please follow signs to safely enter the building. Parking may be limited.  

Accessible parking will remain available in the covered parking area. A loading and unloading zone will be available on State Street for vehicles taller than the 8-foot clearance allowed in the covered parking area. The library entrance from State Street will be unaffected. To plan your visit, view this map.  

For additional parking options, download the Westerville Parking app. Alternatively, consider walking, biking, ride share, or COTA//PLUS. 


This project will:

  • Fix failing infrastructure, including uneven ground
  • Improve visibility and physical access to the entrance
  • Add bright and colorful lighting to draw people towards the entrance and inspire unexpected moments of joy
  • Add seating, trash receptacles, electrical outlets, and bike racks.
