How to get to:

If parking in the Mountain Street garage, get to the lowest level to find the exit that faces the outdoor Gathering Glade and walk across it to get to the Event Center entrance. If parking in the south lot, walk up sidewalk to the School Avenue entrance and follow the hallway until you see the Event Center entrance on your left and the Ziegler Reception Room in front of you.  

During the library’s business hours, you can also enter the building by using the south parking deck doors. The Event Center entrance is at the end of the long hallway, to the right.
