This summer, the Hood River County Library District welcomes people to avoid brutally hot days at Hood River Library. The library will act officially as a cooling shelter. People coming to get out of the heat will get air conditioning, access to water, and lots of comfortable places to sit down and rest. Thanks to Providence Hood River Memorial Hospital, the library also will hand out free refillable water bottles when the outside temperature is 95º or hotter. These bottles can be filled at the library or various other locations downtown, including the new hydration station at Shortt Supply.
The Hood River Library is open as a cooling shelter during its regular open hours: Tuesday-Thursday, 10:00am to 7:00pm, and Friday-Saturday 10:00am to 6:00pm. For more information, please contact us.
