The Cedar Rapids Public Library has various facilities and meeting rooms that are available for public use at the Downtown Library and a Community Room at the Ladd Library. Fees and rates vary depending on the facility and scope of the event.
PARKING: Spaces around Greene Square and in the 4th Avenue Parkade have a 10-hour limit. The Downtown Library has a non-metered lot located on the south side of the building, which is free for up to two hours. Library card holders receive two hours of free parking at any of the metered spaces surround the Library building, around Greene Square, and in the 4th Avenue Parkade. There will be no exceptions made for groups using the Library for meeting space; vehicles may not exceed the two hour parking limit for any reason. Event hosts are solely responsible for informing event attendees of the parking garage time limit and availability. The metered spaces surrounding the Library building are two-hour spaces only. A valid library card is required to receive up to two hours of free parking. It takes up to 48 hours after receiving a library card for this feature to activate. Guests are welcome to use the special kiosk located inside the North Vestibule. Parking is free downtown after 6 p.m. and on weekends. The Library does not offer any special parking for special events.
