Summer heat

So far the summer has been really nice, but 100 degree days are just around the corner!  Here are some
safety tips to survive the summer heat.
  • Stay in a cool place indoors or under a shady tree. 
  • Wear light, loose-fitting clothing, such as cotton, so sweat can evaporate
  • Drink lots of liquids - cool or cold water, drink sport drinks, such as Gatorade, etc. Keep your body hydrated by drinking 8oz of cool water every 15 -20 minutes.
  • Do not stay in or leave anyone in a closed, parked car during hot weather.
  • Perform the most stressful job in the cooler part of the day if possible . 
  • Wear a wide-brimmed hat with vents. 
  • Use an umbrella for shade. 
  • If you feel hot, try to cool off. Open a window. Use a fan. Go to an air-conditioned place. 
The library is filled with comfortable seating, books, computers, and even TV's.  Come visit and stay cool!
