Libraries are Hot Stuff!!

100 degrees The big news this week is the heat—I mean, the HEAT—as a record-breaking heat wave continues to sweep much of the United States.   The cool thing for libraries (pardon the pun) is that the heat wave provides them another chance to demonstrate their importance to the community by serving as “cooling stations.”  (Just search for “public libraries cooling stations” and you’ll find countless articles about this.)

Probably as a result of the heat, resulting in over-taxed air conditioning systems, several libraries in southern Wisconsin had to close, but reopened the next day.  Just by keeping their doors open during this time, libraries are providing a much-needed service to their community.
