Parking on the streets around the library is generally available and on Saturdays the meters are free. There is also limited parking in theálibraryĺs own parking lot at the rear of the building.

Lunch will be on your own but should members desire to meet as a group prior to the meeting for lunch, the California Dreaming Restaurantáat 401 South Main Street, 29201, is highly recommended both for its excellent cuisine as well as the ambiance of the old UnionáStation that once served Southern Railway and Atlantic Coast Line Railroad in Columbia. A recommended time to meet there would be 11:30 am as lunch service begins at that time. Otherárestaurants and eateries are located not far from the Richland Library in the Vista area (along Gervais Street just west of Assembly Street).
