(Operating hours for the Library are Monday through Thursday, 11:00am to 8:00pm, and Friday and Saturday from 11:00am to 6:00pm, closed Sunday). Birch Street residents may use this parking area outside of these operating times. -The municipal building lot should NOT be used for parking, as contractors will be closing the area for work.
