Where can I park when I come to the library?

  • Any metered space. Be sure to pay; the parking enforcement officer visits regularly.

The library lot is divided into two zones:

  • West (closest to the library): 75 cents an hour, 2 hour limit,   8 am to 7 pm Monday to Friday
  • East (further from library):     50 cents an hour, no time limit, 8 am to 6 pm Monday to Friday

Read the meter when you park so you know how much to pay and when.

    Taking Nashua Transit:

  • Ride any bus to the transit center and it's a short 7-10 minute walk to the library. Cross Main Street and walk north, in the direction of the river, until you find either the Library Walk (near the bell) or Park Street. At the end of either the Walk or Park Street, you'll see the library.
  • For a shorter walk, at the transit center, you can take either the 2, the 8, or the 9 bus and get off at the first stop, right by the bell and the Library Walk.
  • If you're coming from the north on the 3, the 2, the 9, or the After7 North Route, you'll want to get off at the first stop just over the river; the second-to-last stop before the transit center. Don't hesitate to ask the driver if you're unsure. Then cross Main Street and walk up Park Street.
  • Paratransit rides door-to-door are available for people with disabilities or those 65 and older. See the Paratransit and Senior Services page for details.
  • For more information, maps, and schedules, visit the Nashua Transit System on the City's website.
