There are a few slots for visitor parking on Bancroft Street on the north side of campus. Otherwise the most places will be in the church parking lot on south side of Prescott. There is a map of the campus posted on LLCGS website under "Library Information" on left-hand side of the screen.  The library is inside the Don Love building - a brick building with a white dome on the roof in the center of the campus.
