Rules of the Road: When can I park in the drop-off zone at the Bellingham library?


Q: What hours are enforced for the book drop-off zone with the green curb in front of the downtown Bellingham library? This is desirable parking for evening and weekend performances at the Mount Baker Theatre when the library is closed. No hours are shown on the signs.

A: The "drop-off zone" in front of the library is placed there to make it easier for patrons to return books to the library whether it is open or not. If no hours are posted, that would indicate that it is enforceable 24 hours.
