Beginning Tuesday, July 14, there will be no parking allowed in the Charles City library parking lot. The area behind the library building will be closed to the public during the duration of the parking lot reconstruction. Library patrons are encouraged to park in the public parking lot located between city hall and the river and utilize the ramped sidewalk to access the library building. The construction work is expected to be completed and the library parking lot open for use in early August. Questions can be directed to the Charles City Engineering department at 641-257-6300. Thank you for your patience during this project!
