The Cooling Center Will Open Today through Thursday Morning: (The Benjamin L. Hooks Central Library)

The City of Memphis has implemented its hot weather plan with the establishment of a Cooling Center. Cooling Centers are places where residents dealing with heat index of at least 105°F for more than 3 hours per day for 2 consecutive days, or heat index more than 115°F for any period of time may escape the extreme conditions. Primary locations for cooling centers are usually malls, shopping centers, libraries, and community centers that are opened during normal business hours.

The After Hours Cooling Center will open today, July 24, 2017 through Thursday morning, July 27, 2017. Each day the operational hours are 9:00 p.m. – 8:00 a.m. unless weather conditions change.

There were 115 guests who utilized the cooling center from Friday, July 21, 2017 – Monday, July 24, 2017.

The Cooling Center Location:

Benjamin L. Hooks Central Library
3030 Poplar Avenue
Memphis, TN 38111

The Cooling Center at the library will be open for those seeking cooling after normal business hours. Those seeking overnight shelter accommodations are encouraged to seek assistance from partners at The Union Mission located at 383 Poplar Ave. or The Salvation Army located at 696 Jackson Ave. For assistance regarding transportation please contact the OEM number below for assistance.
