For the next 3 to 4 months, if all goes well, Flagler Street in front of our location will be under construction. The Reading Room will be open as usual from 9 to 5, Monday thru Friday, and church services will continue at 11am Sunday and 6:30pm on Wednesday. The parking will be a bit of a challenge. The attached map will provide alternatives for you.Valet Parking will be available for $5 for 15 minutes, $10 for 1 hour; and $15 for the day. The location of the valet will be on the East side of NW 1st Avenue next to a small park. It can be reached by a left turn into a small street just north of NW 1st Street, or by making a right turn from NW 1st Street at NW 1st Avenue and the first right a few feet north. Marked Valet on map.
