Directions to Grasselli Library:
If you Mapquest 20680 North Park Blvd, Shaker Heights, 44118. That will get you to Pizzazz, near the
John Carroll University guardhouse. There, you turn right, drive about 50 yards to the guard house.
After checking in with the guard, turn right. Then follow the drive around the edge of campus to Administration Drive.
Turn left, go half a block to a jog in the drive, where you turn left into the temporary lot. The library is a
modern building on the far side of the lot. The Mackin Room is in the basement, down the stairs near the reference desk.
Then jog to the right and go straight ahead to the Lecture Room at the end of the hall.
Local directions for getting here from the south are to come up Warrensville, turn right
onto Fairmount Circle, then turn right onto North Park Blvd. *NE*
// From the north, come south on Warrensville, past Cedar. When you see a BP station on the left,
turn right onto Fairmount Circle. Go 2/3s of the way around the circle to North Park Blvd. *NE*.
// From both directions, drive one block on North Park NE to a stop sign. Turn right. Then the guardhouse
is nearby on the left. Turn right at the guardhouse, drive around the perimeter drive until you come to
Administration Drive. Turn left. Go a short distance to the Temporary Lot on your left. The library is a
modern building on the far side of the lot. Take the stairs near the reference desk and follow the signs to the Mackin Room.
Visitors do not need permits to park after 5 p.m. on Friday nights. When people leave the meeting, they
probably will have to follow the perimeter drive all the way around campus to the Belvoir gate. That will
put them out onto Belvoir between Washington and Carroll.
