Due to the extreme heat forcasted in the Milwaukee area this week all Milwaukee Public Library locations are designated "Cool Spots," places where people trying to cope with the excessive heat can visit to cool off and relax. The only exception is Tippecanoe branch library, 3912 S. Howell Ave., which is closed until further notice due to an HVAC malfunction.
Extended hours for all 13 MPL locations are as follows:
Central Library downtown: 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. daily, July 19-22
All MPL neighborhood branches: 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. daily, July 19-22
