Gettysburg Parking Lot Open

The Library parking lot in Gettysburg is open again to car traffic.  I thank everyone for their patience while the project was being worked on.  The company continues work on the sidewalks on High Street, but the parking lot is open.

Gettysburg Library Parking Lot Closed 07/21-07/25

The Library learned on Friday that the work being done on High Street would close the library parking lot from Monday 07/21 through Friday 07/25.  The libraries two doors will be open and the library will still be accessible from the Middle Street Parking Lot.

The best library parking will be on Baltimore Street, South of Wade Ave. where meters are one hour for $.25.

All the libraries in the county will be open regular hours next week.  Check out East Berlin, Biglerville, Littlestown, New Oxford or Fairfield.

We truly apologize for this inconvenience.
