During bouts of hot weather (like now!), city facilities will be used as cooling centers to provide the public with relief from the heat. Of course, City facilities are always open to the public during regular hours, but during periods of high temps, some facilities may extend their hours of operation. Library hours vary by facility. To check hours of your local branch, visit www.lapl.org/branches, or call 213-228-7000. Library staff will work with the Department on Disability to provide reasonable accommodations to those with disabilities and access and functional needs limitations. Recreation and Parks facilities hours also vary by location. Visit laparks.org,laparks.org/dos/senior/senior.htm, or call 3-1-1 for hours of operation. Rec and Parks will also provide reasonable accommodations to those with disabilities and access and functional needs limitations. Outside the County of Los Angeles, call the County at 2-1-1. And, of course, there’s always the mall.
