John Grant Crabbe Main Library

From I-75 North: take exit 87, turn right onto EKU Bypass; turn left onto Lancaster Avenue; turn right onto University Drive (there is no light at the intersection of Lancaster and University). The library is the second cluster of buildings on your right as you enter University Drive. A beautiful, very old brick building with elaborate windows anchors the front corner of the Libraries Complex. The entrance to the library is set back from the street, off the little grassy area and where the large glass window begins.
