During the next few months Maiden Lane will be seeing a lot of construction activity. As we hope this does not disrupt our business too much, the street as well as the sidewalk may be closed temporarily. We do suggest that those patrons able to, may want to park on streets closer to Taylor Park and walk to the Library from the
Bank Street direction.
St. Albans Free Library cardholders have remote access to these databases with their Library cards.
