Venue information: Carnegie Center for Literacy and Learning, 251 W. Second St., Lexington, KY 40507

Directions to the Carnegie Center

Parking: Lacking its own lot and no longer having use of lots owned by Transylvania University, the Carnegie Center has created this parking map showing nearby parking options: metered, free, and disabled. You may need to pay to park on Friday daytime, but on Thursday night, and all day Saturday and Sunday, free street parking is plentiful, as the street meters are not in use except on weekdays until 5 p.m.
