Getting to the Library by Bus

The Library is currently served by 6 stops along East Franklin Street via multiple routes  from approximately 7am-8pm on weekdays and 9am-4pm on Saturdays.  Around 100 total bus trips serve these stops each week.   See map of bus stops.

Crosswalks are present at stops at the intersection of E. Franklin and Estes Drive, - which has a stoplight w/walk signal, and mid-block further down Franklin.  Some stops are close to the paved path to the library (see below).

From any of the stops indicated on the map of bus stops, you can get to the library two ways:

  • from Franklin Street, walk up the paved path, marked on the map, that goes directly to the Library.  The path runs between The Retreat  at 1513 E. Franklin and Winchester Court  at 1515 E. Franklin.  We encourage library patrons to utilize this path.
  • walk up Estes Drive and then take the first right onto Library Drive.
