Cooling Centers

All DMPL locations are serving as cooling centers during open hours. DART is providing free rides to cooling center locations July 12-15 due to the extreme heat. Additional cooling center locations can be found here. Please check the events calendar for any weather-related postponements or cancelations prior to attending outdoor events.

Thank You To Our Donors!
