Metro government is modernizing the parking garage adjacent to the Main Library. Approximately 360 spaces will be added and other improvements will be made to the garage. Several parking spaces are temporarily closed for the duration of construction. Project completion is expected in late spring of 2018. Due to the temporary parking space decrease, please allow extra time when planning your visit. We also recommend using Nashville MTA’s free Music City Circuit buses, which make regular stops at 5th Ave. N. & Church St. Click here for more information.
