Richland Library’s Lower Lot to Close

Exterior Construction to Cause Temporary Parking Restriction

Columbia, SC- As Richland Library continues with construction to its Main location (1431 Assembly Street), it is preparing for exterior work to begin on the property. Starting Sunday, March 19, the lower level parking lot, located at the corner of Washington and Park Streets, is closing.

Customers are still able to access the upper level parking lot, located at the corner of Hampton and Park Streets, as well as any of the City of Columbia’s nearby metered spaces.

In the interim, if customers would like to change their holds pick-up location to any of our other locations across Richland County, they can do so by clicking here and inputting their account information.

The lower level parking lot is expected to reopen in the summer. Customers can look forward to a more convenient experience, including improved traffic flow and additional parking spaces.

Construction to the lower level parking lot is part of a nearly $15 million project, planned for Richland Library Main. It was made possible by Richland County residents with the passage of a $59 million bond referendum back in 2013. We are continuing to use that money to enhance our library facilities over the next few years.
