Starting Monday and continuing through mid-June, the parking lot at Darien Library could be more difficult to park in — and impossible for some when popular events are going on. New wells are being drilled under the parking lot for the library’s geothermal heating and cooling system, and that will take up some parking spaces at various spots. “We will have a parking attendant to help direct traffic during days with significant programs or high traffic,” the library recently announced. “Our overflow lot on Thorndal Circle is available on the evenings and weekends,” the library said in an announcement last week. The library says it will provide regular updates to the public throughout the project.
