As medical experts in Kalamazoo and Battle Creek warn, extreme heat is dangerous and can kill you. Drink lots of water, and keep hydrated. If you can, get to a cooling station, like a Kalamazoo Public Library branch.
The Kalamazoo Public Library is hoping to build a "Library of Things" that patrons could check out free of charge. Tools, cooking appliances, etc. Know of something that should be added? They're currently conducting a survey.
Some of the services and goods that have not been available are coming back, including magazines and newspapers, technology including iPads and Chromebooks, video games in the "Teen" area at Central Library, and study rooms will be available.
