View Larger Map

From I-26, take the Airport exit (exit 40) to Brevard.  At the top of the exit ramp, take a right if coming from Asheville and the north, or turn left if coming from Spartanburg and the south. Follow Highway 280 all the way to Brevard (approximately 25 minutes). A busy four-way intersection near Wal-Mart and Bi-Lo is the junction of Highways 280, 64 and 276.  There will be a Lowe’s on your left and just a bit further, also on the left, is the Holiday Inn Express.

As you approach town, Hwy. 280 becomes Broad Street.  You will eventually pass a shopping center with an Ingles and K-Mart (on your left) — stay in the left lane.  Continue in the left lane (the road splits just after the Burger King and the right lane veers off). Continue straight into downtown.  You will pass the entrance to Brevard College on the left.  You will go uphill to the traffic light at the intersection of Broad St. (which is the street you are on) and Main Street — the Transylvania County courthouse will be on the left corner at this light. Continue through the light and through the next light. At the third light (First Citizen’s Bank is on your right and the old library building is on your left), turn left onto Morgan Street (this is a one-way street). Go one block to the stop sign, turn right onto Gaston Street. Go one block to the stop sign – turn right into the library parking lot.

If you happen to miss the turn at Morgan Street continue down Broad Street.   You will pass in front of the library on the left.  At the next left (Varsity Street), turn left, then turn left again at the next street (Gaston Street). Continue on Gaston to a four way stop.  Turn left at this intersection into the Library parking lot.
