Gleason Public Library is a prominent brick building located at 22 Bedford Road, which is Route 225, just 50 feet east of the town center rotary. The driveway entrance is on the right side of the building.
From the East (route 128/I-95)
Take Bedford/Carlisle Rte 225 exit (exit #49B) west. Follow Rte. 225 to Carlisle center (approximately 5 miles). Pass the post office on your left. The Library is the second building on the left after the post office and just before the rotary. The entrance is on the far side.
From the West (route I-495)
Take the Boston Rd./Westford Rte. 225 exit (exit #83) east. Bear right onto Boston Rd. At the traffic lights, continue straight ahead. Continue 1.3 miles on Carlisle Rd. to its end. Turn left onto Rte. 225 and follow it for about 4 miles to Carlisle center. Bear left at the stop sign. Continue straight through the rotary, in the direction of Rte. 225 East. Immediately out of the rotary turn right at the cross-walk into the library parking lot.
From the North (routes 3 / I-495, Lowell area) )
From route 3 south, take the Treble Cove Rd. exit towards Carlisle/North Billerica (exit #78). Follow Treble Cove Rd. (which becomes Maple St. and then East St.) approximately 4 miles to Carlisle center. When the road ends at a stop sign, bear right. The library is diagonally across the street, just before the rotary. The entrance is on the far side.
Take Lowell Rd. (which becomes Concord Rd.) to its end in Carlisle center (approximately 5 mile). Proceed straight through the Carlisle rotary, East, in the direction of Rte. 225 toward Bedford. Immediately out of the rotary turn right at the cross-walk into the library parking lot.

The Library asks individuals attending programs to consider parking at adjacent lots. These are within a very short walking distance of the library. Parking is very limited at the Library.
At town center, on 225 (Bedford Rd coming west or Concord Rd coming east), near the rotary, turn onto School St going up the hill. Take the first left onto Church St. You will see the School parking lot to the right. Across from this parking entrance is a path through the trees to the Library. You can park across the street from this path on Church St.
At town center, at the rotary on 225, turn onto Lowell St. Pass the store Ferns (big yellow building on the corner). There is parking to the right in a small town lot.
