How to Find Us
The closest landmark to the Fox Library is the Capitol Theater in East Arlington. If you are coming from Cambridge on Mass Ave, the Fox Library is a brick building on your right just before Lake Street. If you are coming from Arlington center, the brick building will be on your left just after Lake Street. The library's main entrance is on Cleveland Street. To find the shop once you're in the library, look for the computers - the shop entrance is just beyond them.
You can take the # 77 bus almost to our door! Just get off at Lake St going inbound, or Winter St going outbound and walk a few storefronts towards Cambridge and you will see our brick building. We are on the side of Mass Ave opposite the Capitol Theater.
We are a lovely stroller-friendly 20 minute walk from the Alewife T stop on the Red Line. Follow signs to Arlington and the Minuteman Commuter Bikeway (don't follow the signs to Davis Square, that's the opposite direction). When you get to Lake Street, take a right. Cross Mass Ave and we are a few storefronts on the left. Ride your bike and get the best parking spot - on the sidewalk in front of the building!
Parking on Mass Ave is free but restricted to 1 or 2 hours (no meter); parking on the side streets is free and unrestricted.
