The Library’s Address

 

Racine Public Library
75 Seventh Street
Racine, WI 53403
(262) 636-9217

Parking

 

Parking closest to the library (along Lake Avenue and in the lake-side parking lots) is metered, so please bring coins or download Racine’s parking app to your smartphone in preparation for your visit. You can pay in your preferred increment along Lake Avenue and at the lot closest to the library. The second nearest parking lot to the library costs $2 a day, cash or card.

 

Please stop into the library’s business office if you will need a visitor parking pass for your stay. If you’re up for a walk, parking along Lake Avenue is free once you get to the intersection of Lake and 9th. And keep an eye out for free parking days during events like our VITA tax prep sessions.

 

Temporary change: Parking in the lower parking lot on Sixth Street and Library Drive (the one closer to the splash pad) is free until the broken payment machine is replaced. A replacement is anticipated in January.
