West Fargo Library entrance update; doors 1 and 23 now open

Contractors will begin performing maintenance of the parking lot at the Lodoen Community Center, which houses the West Fargo Library, this week.

During construction, the northwest entrance to the lot will be closed. Motorists must use the southwest entrance to enter and exit the lot. Motorists are asked to please follow any posted signs and traffic cones and to be cautious of workers. Visitors may experience congestion within the parking lot. At times, the Lodoen Center Parking lot may be full or closed. There is street parking available on Third Street E and in the surrounding neighborhood as well as a lot south of Third Avenue E.

The Lodoen Community Center and adjacent buildings are home to the West Fargo Public Library as well as the Early Childhood Center, YMCA daycares, Headstart, Community High, Transition Academy and other entities. When visiting the library, please be courteous of others using the parking lot and keep an eye out for families and children, especially during times of parking lot congestion. The City of West Fargo recommends using the 'S' check when traveling in and around construction areas - check your speed, space and stress.

UPDATE 6/16/2022: Contractors have postponed work on this project. At this time both door 1 and door 23 are available for West Fargo Public Library patrons to access. Because work on the sidewalk removed the grade (or ramp) of the sidewalk, wheelchair users or those with strollers will want to continue to use door 23, which has a ramp available.  

The West Fargo Library will continue to update patrons throughout this project. To be the first to know about library news, service changes, construction and upcoming events sign up for email alerts at
