Parking Information

Whether you’re coming to the Book Festival in a car or on a scooter, please review this page carefully for information on parking options. Please let us know if you have any questions!

Parking at the Central Library

On April 6, it will cost $5 to park inside the Central Library garage, no matter how much time you spend at the Book Festival. Payment is due upon entry to help facilitate a speedy exit for our Festival attendees! CREDIT CARD ONLY. Attendants will NOT have cash on hand.

Tip: Arrive early if you plan to park here as this lot, being the closest one to the Festival, fills up fast!

HEADS UP: Southbound entry into the garage (from Soledad) will not be permitted. Enter from northbound Soledad.
