DPL Parking Lot Re-Design Project

Begins Monday, August 5, 2019

Decatur Public Library is excited to announce that on Monday, August 5, 2019, the construction of a new parking lot will begin.

Beginning Monday, parking at Decatur Public Library will be limited to the easternmost portion of the parking lot and a few spots, including handicapped spots, in the southwestern portion of the library lot, facing Main Street.

In addition to this, the City of Decatur has reserved several free spots for library patrons on both levels of the parking garage opposite the library on the corner of Main Street and Franklin.

Construction is expected to last until the end of November, but access to the new portion of the lot is expected to begin earlier. Decatur Public Library will not change its operating hours during construction. Pedestrian access will be limited to the southern portion of the building entrance and library patrons will access from Main Street or the southwestern portion of the parking lot. Please visit for updates.

Thank you for your patience as the city of Decatur works to improve and enhance our parking situation.
