24-hour book return

You can return your items 24/7 through our outside book drop. The book drop is on the west side of the Library. Take the first exit on the roundabout to reach the west parking lot.

Getting here

By car

The Library is easily accessible by car, and we have two parking lots for the Library. You can reach both parking lots by turning on Colonnade Drive. Both feature accessible parking.

The large parking lot off Fieldstone Drive belongs to Twelve Bridges High School.

Note: Our entrance faces Twelve Bridges High School, so our parking lots are to the sides of the building. This makes the path to the entrance longer than some new visitors expect.

By NEV

The Library is accessible by NEV from Sun City Lincoln Hills and many other parts of the city. Our east parking lot features NEV parking and charging.

The Library is not accessible by golf cart.
