Evening and Weekend Parking

On evenings and weekends, when the parking lot is full at Darien Library, there is plenty of overflow parking behind Nielsen's. Just drive over onto Thorndal Circle and turn left at the 2nd driveway where you'll find a sea of spots!  And here's even better news! There is a lighted, paved walkway that connects directly to the Library parking lot. (A shortcut!) (You do not have to walk all the way around and down to the Post Road.)

So, on evenings and weekends, when our parking lot is full, please go to the land where the parking is plentiful and lit (and legal!).
