Extreme Weather Warning

Please be advised that the library will likely close on short notice if the interior temperature reaches 85 degrees or higher. This warning is in effect until such time as the air conditioner is repaired or weather conditions improve.

Thank you for your patience and understanding was we deal with air conditioner repairs. In the meantime, visit the Washington County website for tips on how to stay cool during extreme heat situations or visit 211info.org to search for cooling centers in your area. Stay cool, Aloha!
