Grand Rapids Public Library Exploration

DATE CONFIRMED: Tue 8 Jul 2014 @ 6:30 PM...

Grand Rapids Public Library Exploration

Hoping to get back in the stacks (Library Personnel Only Areas) as well as tour the Furniture Library Research Room. I've requested they highlight architectural details and history about the building.



I recommend we find street parking which is free after 5 p.m. If there's an event happening downtown it may be difficult to get a meter. There is 1-hour of free validated parking in the gated lot next to the Main Library. Let's make sure everyone that may go this route gets their card validated near the front desk. Parking rates after the first validated hour are $1.10 per half-hour during the week, free on weekends and for Library events.



Photography is allowed, but only of the building's architecture. It actually is illegal to photograph any library patrons, that includes photographing each other. It has to do with a Michigan State Law. Thank you for your understanding.


How Long Will The Tour Last?

We're figuring the tour to take about an hour. It's really going to depend on how many questions we may ask.


See you there...
