Letter: Handicapped parking at library

Recently I have become more aware of the lack of accessibility for handicapped people of all ages. Our beautiful new library in Glenwood Springs has handicapped parking spaces — but only across the street in a parking lot.

There are no designated handicapped parking places on the same side of the street as the library. Able-bodied patrons can walk without difficulty through the parking lot and across the street. Handicapped patrons need closer and safer parking places, especially in snowy weather.

There have been days when I wasn’t able to go into the library because I couldn’t manage walking with my cane and carrying my portable oxygen unit and books through the lot and across the street. We need handicapped parking spots next to the library.
