Location and Parking
The Library and Archives is at 2809 Woodland Avenue in Cleveland, Ohio. The facility is at the corner of Woodland Avenue and East 30th Street, in a shared building with the Tommy LiPuma Center for Creative Arts of Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C). This is approximately two miles southeast of the Museum.
Metered parking spaces are available on the street in front of the building or around the block. From there, walk in the building’s main entrance, enter the lobby, and the entrance to the Library and Archives will be immediately on the right. There is also a Visitor Parking area in Lot 6 of our parking garage. These spaces should be paid for at meter stations located nearby. From the garage, enter the building's back entrance, take the elevator on the left to the first floor, enter the lobby, and look for the entrance to the Library and Archives on the left.
