Parking at the Library

The Library is located in the center of town, on North Main Street (Route 28) at the intersection of Elm, Main and Central Streets (also known as Elm Square). Other streets surrounding the library are Pearson Street and Essex Street.

There is a large, Pay By Space parking lot behind the library. Entrances to the lot are on Essex Street and Pearson Street.

  • The parking lot is owned, controlled, and policed by the Town of Andover, not the library.
  • The parking system is Pay By Space. Simply note the number of your parking space, walk to the kiosks in the middle of the parking lot, pay for that space, and walk away. You don't have to return to your vehicle to display a receipt. A few things to keep in mind:
    • The machine does not give change
    • You select the amount of time BEFORE paying
    • It costs $.25 per half hour, or $.50 per hour to park in the lot
    • You can for for up to 4 hours ($2)
    • You can pay by coins, one dollar bills or credit/debit card
    • Your receipt shows how much time you have left
    • Hours of operation - Monday through Saturday, 8am-6pm, no Sundays or holidays
  • In the event that the library parking lot is full, there is street parking on Elm, Central, Essex, and Pearson Streets. Most of this parking is for two hours.
  • BankNorth and Bank of America have graciously offered to let you use their parking lots on Sundays and in the evenings when our lots are full because of events at the library. Entrances to both bank lots are on Central Street.
