Entrance to the event space is street level, through a 4-metre-wide entry into a long gallery-type reading hall. Seating is a mix of (different kinds of) chairs and five benches that seat 5-6 people each. There is one fully-accessible stall in the bathroom. All single doors in the building (including the bathroom door and bathroom-stall door) are 34".
Parking is scarce in the area so we recommend public-transiting, biking, or walking if feasible.
