Beat the Heat at Lake County’s Libraries and Peer Support Centers

Triple-Digit Temperatures Likely Today-Tuesday

Lake County, CA (July 8, 2021) – Triple-Digit Temperatures are forecast today-Tuesday of next week, and many members of our communities will be seeking opportunities to escape the heat.  For some, County Library Branches and Peer Support Centers may be a great option.  While none of these are formal cooling centers, and capacity is limited at each site, they are invaluable community resources when temperatures climb.

Lake County’s four Public Library Branches are open during their normal business hours.  While you cool off, check out the many new materials and digital services the Library has to offer – there is something for everyone!  If you are planning to visit, please be advised face coverings are required for people that are not vaccinated.  Library visitors self-attest they ARE fully vaccinated by entering the building with no mask on.  Here is a list of Lake County Library locations, and their hours of operation:
