REAL MAIL FRIDAYS:
Stars and Stripes Social
Friday July 5, 2019
2 to 6 PM in JCBA's Book Arts Gallery
at FAU's Wimberly Library 3rd Floor East
Right on the heels of the Fourth of July comes this month’s Real Mail Fridays Letter Writing Social, so we’re keeping those Stars and Stripes flying through the weekend. We’ll provide the coffee and tea and some delicious summery treats. We’ll supply the air conditioned comfort. And of course, we’ll also supply the note cards, papers and pens, art supplies, and postage stamps, too. All you need to bring is a festive spirit, your address book, and a $10 donation. Come when you can and leave when you must… we’ll be here writing letters and having fun from 2 to 6 PM, when the library closes.
The Jaffe Center for Book Arts is located on the third floor east of Florida Atlantic University's Wimberly Library. From I-95 or the Florida Turnpike, exit Glades Road, east. The FAU campus is located just east of I-95. If you enter the campus at FAU's main entrance (the one furthest west on Glades Road... and the first one you get to approaching from I-95 or the turnpike), you will enter on West University Drive. Continue straight on West University Drive to the traffic light at its intersection with Volusia Street. Turn right onto Volusia Street. You will see a parking garage on Volusia Street, and the Wimberly Library is the next building east of the parking garage.
The new I-95 interchange for Florida Atlantic University (Exit 48A) takes you directly from the interstate to FAU. Once you pass the traffic light at Spanish River Boulevard, you are on the FAU campus on FAU Boulevard. Continue to the traffic signal at the intersection of FAU Boulevard and University Drive (FAU Stadium will be on your right). Turn right onto University Drive. Turn left at the traffic signal at Volusia Street. You will see a parking garage on Volusia Street, and the Wimberly Library is the next building east of the parking garage.
Visitor Parking is available at the metered spaces in the library parking lot; look for the spaces that have numbers posted on signs at the head of the parking space. The meter system accepts payment with cash or credit card at the rate of $2 per hour. You may also purchase one day parking permit for $5 online directly. Easy!
Start here: http://www.fau.edu/parking/permits.php. Then click on “Visitor, Guest & Volunteer Parking / Permits” … you’ll find it with a yellow icon just below Student Permits and Faculty/Staff Permits. As far as the library goes, these permits are valid anywhere throughout our nearby parking areas (Library Lot, Parking Garage, and parallel parking on Volusia Street) but they are not valid at metered spaces.
