Downtown Street Closures for Hoopfest

Want to come to the downtown branch of the Spokane Public Library for some genealogical research on Saturday? Keep in mind that Hoopfest, the world's largest 3-on-3 basketball tournament will be held this Saturday and Sunday, June 28th and 29th in downtown Spokane.

But take heart: you can still easily access the library on Saturday via Monroe and Lincoln Streets, although parking space in area lots and garages may be at a premium. Both the library's Diamond Parking garage in the basement and Parkade (Main and Stevens) will be open (but possibly full or crowded). Riverpark Square parking garage appears to be open as well.

A map showing the street closures, open routes, and parking areas is available online here. Closures will begin Friday evening, June 27th at 7:00 PM (the library closes at 6 PM) and continue through the evening of the 29th until about 10:00 PM.

You may also consider taking Spokane Transit. Their website has a handy trip planner (best viewed with Internet Explorer) to help you figure out your bus schedule.
