To help combat the stifling summer heat, United Way of Brazoria County and ActionS, Inc. of Brazoria County have partnered with the Brazoria County Library System to create cooling stations throughout the county.
From August 1st to September 27th, the Brazoria County Library system will open its doors for those that need relief from the heat. Residents may take advantage of the cooling stations when the heat index is predicted to be 100 degrees or higher on Monday through Saturday from 1pm until library closing time.
"Our libraries strive to fill whatever needs we can in the community. By partnering with ActionS and United Way and using our branch libraries as cooling stations, we are letting people know that the Brazoria County Library System is more than books," said Tom West, the Adult Program Coordinator for the Brazoria County Library System.
