Parking Lot & Drive-Up Lane

For the foreseeable future, patrons will need to both enter and exit the library’s parking lot from the east. The west half of the lot will be blocked off for construction.

  • The southernmost lane will serve as the entrance. Patrons need to make an immediate left upon entering the lot.
  • The northernmost lane will serve as the exit.

A Drive-Up Lane has been added to the southeast corner of the building. Patrons using the Drive-Up Lane must put items on hold in advance. Signage marks the lane and provides instruction.

Program Description

Monthly Donation Day

  • 2nd Saturday of each month
  • 10am-1pm; Community Room

Bloomington Public Library volunteers accept donations of gently used books, audio books, DVDs, CDs, and Blu-ray discs on the second Saturday of each month from 10am-1pm in the Library’s Community Room. Those wishing to donate are asked to bring the materials to the Community Room or to pull into the Library’s main parking lot, take an immediate left, and drive under the overhang. There, volunteers will help unload the materials from the donor’s vehicle. Items will be sold with proceeds benefiting Library programs.
