Upper lot is now open

The Scripps Miramar Ranch Library’s parking lot is currently undergoing a much anticipated and long needed expansion. The first phase of the project is now complete, which is good news. The upper lot has reopened with a new configuration and a few more parking spaces than the original upper lot.

However, the lower lot is now completely closed so that the number of available parking spaces is even fewer than when the situation was reversed.

Furthermore, the City’s Engineering Department has advised that it will not be possible to allow access to the library from the overflow parking area on Meanley Drive during this phase of construction. Thus, parking at the library will be even more adversely impacted than had been previously expected and, most likely, this will continue through the summer of 2025.

The Scripps Ranch Friends of the Library are looking forward to completion of the expansion, which will add 47 more parking spaces to the original 70 plus a second exit to the parking lot with a traffic light.  

Note that it is now possible to drive into the upper lot and quickly return books to the outside book drop to the left of the main entrance.

Library patrons may wish to plan to visit the library when it is less busy. These times include Mondays and Tuesdays, 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 or 3 p.m., and 6 to 8 p.m.; Wednesdays to Fridays, 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 or 3 p.m., and 5 to 6 p.m.; and Saturdays, 3 or 4 to 6 p.m.
