There is a small parking lot adjacent to the building, additional street and municipal lot parking is close by.

Will there be library programs?

Is there space to work, be tutored, hang out, etc?
Not really. The RML REcollection space is quite limited and we’re trying to optimize its use. There will be extremely limited comfortable seating and no real place to sit and work/study for an extended period.
