Stay Cool with the Library

The New York Public Library's locations across the Bronx, Manhattan, and Staten Island serve as NYC Cooling Centers, which are free public facilities that offer relief for those who experience physical discomfort in a heat wave.  Find an open location near you to stay cool and safe this summer. Be sure to check your library's location page for open hours and other important information. NYPL locations are free and open to anyone.
