Due to Dalton Tower renovations, the Dalton Reading Room, our service point, is temporarily closed. We provide services by appointment on the Main Floor of Atkins Library in Room 123. (See purple area of the Main Floor on the Atkins floor maps).

Park and walk to the library

The Cone Visitor Parking Deck (8919 University Rd, Charlotte NC 28223) is the visitor’s lot that is closest to the library. You can find more information about visitor parking, including fees and a map, on the Parking and Transportation Services website. Please see the library's Directions & Parking page for directions to the Cone Deck and walking to the library from there.

Directions to the Loading Dock

The address of the Library loading dock is 411 Library Lane, Charlotte, NC. Here is an electronic map. (Note: the GPS directions do not take you all the way -- you need to cross the sidewalk and take the driveway alongside the library until you can't go any further). See this page for a pdf map

The loading dock is for loading/unloading - there is no public parking in that location. If you will be visiting the library after unloading, please park in the Cone Visitors Deck. (See above - "Park and walk to the library").
