Library in Downtown Little Rock Needs More Parking

Central Arkansas Library System wants to build a parking garage.
LITTLE ROCK,AR - Central Arkansas Library System (CALS) leaders say they don't have enough parking for the patrons that visit.

They believe building a multi-tier parking deck a block away in Riverfront Park will alleviate some of the parking problems they have.

Leaders want to partner with the city so people who visit the River Market restaurants and shops will also have a place to park.

It's still in the planning stages, but leaders believe it's doable.

"It's not just the library that's growing. It's the whole area. The city needs more parking. We need more parking and we're going to have to find a place to build a deck," says Bobby Roberts, CALS Director.

Opponents believe it would cause more traffic problems and disrupt the Arkansas River Trail.
