[Libs-Or] Cooling shelter?

Hi Buzzy,
We haven't found it necessary to act as a cooling shelter here, but when I was a librarian in Philadelphia, my branch was a designated cooling shelter when the heat index reached a certain point dictated by the Powers That Be. For us this mainly involved extended hours; instead of closing at 6 PM, as we did most nights, we stayed open until 8, and ended up extending library services during this time.

> Have any of you ever acted as an official cooling center in your communities? Hood River has a warming shelter, but it doesn't have a cooling shelter in the summers despite the rather hot days. We're perhaps interested in trying it out. If you've been a cooling shelter, what did it entail and did you partner with any other local organizations? Is there anything you'd suggest?
Thanks for your help!
