Almont Avenue Road Repair Project
June 27 - Labor Day

Almont Avenue from 4th Street to Imlay City Road will be under construction beginning June 27, and is expected to be completed by Labor Day.

During periods when the library's parking lot is inaccessible, we advise using the spaces available downtown on Almont south of 4th Street or the nearby municipal lot directly across 4th Street.

Please do not park in the alley behind the library: it needs to remain clear for residential driveway and vehicle access. There is a recessed space next to the library which may be used for drop offs and deliveries only.

Parking for patrons with disabilities has been reserved directly next to the library, at the corner of Almont and 4th Street. Patrons with disabilities who are being dropped off at the library are also welcome to call and let staff know they are coming; we will meet such patrons at the drop off point in the alley behind the library and let them in the back door which is immediately adjacent.

Please keep visiting us during this repair project: there's lots going on at the library this summer!
