Due to the extended Excessive Heat Warning, Cooling Centers will remain open at the Grass Valley and Penn Valley libraries from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. through Friday, September 9th. Air-conditioned space and water will be available. Well-behaved pets on a leash are allowed, and both locations are ADA accessible. Library desk services will only be available during regular library hours, but residents can access the Wi-Fi and look at the materials while using the space.
Nevada County's Office of Emergency Services partners with Nevada County Public Health to review our plans for Excessive Heat Emergencies during high-heat events. Nevada County's Department of Social Services is activating Cooling Centers for residents due to extreme daytime temperatures and minimal overnight recovery. Higher temperatures can be dangerous for all people, especially the very young, senior citizens, pregnant women, and those with chronic medical conditions.
Tips for Hot Weather
* If your doctor limits the amount of fluid you drink or take water pills, ask them how much you should drink when the weather is hot.
