Hiding in plain sight
The entrance to our branch is a little tricky to find. We’re working on signage to help you find us easily, but in the meantime please follow these directions.
Here's how to find our Washington Park building:
Our branch is located in the Community Building/Washington Pavilion on the lagoon on the north east side of the park (Location address: 1859 N. 40th St.; our Lisbon address is for our mail). Our branch isn’t the whole building, just the north end of it. While there are several entrances to this building our primary entrance is on the west side of the building facing the lagoon. Don’t be confused by the first door you see from the driveway. Keep going around to the lagoon. You will find the double doors that open into our part of the building at the north end. The doors are painted dark blue with a picture of a night scene (a tree, owl and skunk). Don’t be fooled by the two other sets of painted double doors on this side of the building! Open the door during our visiting hours and ta-da, you found us!
