Cooling centers

In the event of extreme heat and humidity, the City opens cooling centers, which are air-conditioned spaces available for public use.

Additionally, some branches of the Free Library have extended hours during periods of excessive heat, and all are air conditioned spaces where you can go to cool off and catch up on some reading.
