Parking On Campus:Golf ball on green

The nearest visitor parking to the library is lot 62W, a paylot located on Red Cedar Road, just west of Spartan Stadium. Walk across the street to the sidewalk on the north side of Red Cedar Road. Follow this sidewalk east (to the right) about 500 feet to the footbridge which crosses the Red Cedar River. The footbridge leads directly to the south ("Red Cedar") entrance of the Main Library. The Patron Services Desk is the large semi-circle desk located between the two entrances and can give you directions to the Turfgrass Information Center (TIC) if you desire. TIC is located on the 3rd floor of the West wing, in the Northwest corner.
