Finding the library, parking and access
The library is located in Micklegate, next to the Micklegate pay and display car park.
From the North, follow the A19 into the town centre to the toll bridge traffic lights. At the traffic lights, turn right, onto Water Lane (parallel to the river). Take the second left (past the narrowing in the road) which brings you into the pay and display car park. The library is on your immediate left.
From the West and South, follow the A63 (from the west) or the A1041 or A19 (from the south) into the town centre until you are at the traffic lights in front of the Abbey. If on the A63 or A19, then continue straight ahead, if on the A1041 then turn right. This brings you to The Crescent and to the traffic lights at the toll bridge crossroads. Turn left at the lights, onto Water Lane (parallel to the river). Take the second left (past the narrowing in the road) which brings you into the pay and display car-park. The library is immediately on your left.
The train station and bus station are both located on Park Street, which is a five minute walk from the library. Exit the train/bus station and walk towards the Abbey. Cross at the pedestrian crossing to the market area in front of the Abbey (towards the Market Cross monument). Go down Finkle Street (Barclays Bank on your right at the top of the street, Thomas Cook Travel Agent on your left). Continue into Micklegate, passing the post office on your right hand side. The library is at the end of the street on your right hand side.
There is a short-stay pay and display car park immediately outside the library on Micklegate. This has both standard and disabled parking spaces. Alternative free parking can be found at Morrisons and Tesco supermarkets (maximum stay two hours) nearby in town, about five to ten minutes walk away.
The library has automatic doors and is completely at ground level, with no stairs or steps. All areas are accessible to wheelchairs.
