Need to Beat the Heat? Visit Your Local Library

Temperatures are expected to rise beyond 105 in portions of Lake County tomorrow (Saturday), and hot weather is anticipated all of next week.  For many, it will be essential to seek out a cool place to take a break from the heat.  Lake County’s four Public Library Branches are open during their normal business hours.  Our Library Branches are not formal cooling centers, and capacity is limited, but they are a valuable community resource when temperatures climb.  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:
