Adult/teen library services, however, will be relocated to a temporary facility, at 290 S. Anaheim Blvd., which is two blocks east of Central Library and next to City Hall. Public parking at this facility will be available at the corner of Anaheim Blvd. and 42nd St., as well in the parking structure behind City Hall.
