All parking lot meters must be paid seven days a week. After 5:00 PM and on weekends, on-street parking is free where parking is permitted. Free parking within 20 minutes walking distance is also available at the Lawrence-Dumont Baseball Stadium, and in the Old Town district.
The small parking lots immediately north and south of the library have a limited number of metered spaces, as well as handicapped spaces. Meter charges for these lots are 25 cents per half-hour and 50 cents per hour, with a one-hour limit. The larger parking lot south of the library has many more spaces. Meters cost 10 cents per half-hour or 25 cents for two hours, and the time limit is ten hours. There are several other public parking ramps and lots convenient to the library. Charges average 75 cents per hour, with daily maximums up to $7.50.
