When We Are Closed, These Warming Centers Are Open

In an effort to proactively inform all about where to find shelter during severe weather, this information is posted at library front entrances. The library is a de facto warming center, meaning public spaces organically serve as centers during open library hours only. All locations require masks and physical distancing; some also have temperature checks upon arrival. Questions? Ask our Social Services and Public Safety Team »

Volunteers and meals needed for emergency warming shelters. If you are interested in volunteering to assist as a shelter associate or help transport individuals or donate meals, please email Cherrell Jackson at cjackson@housingforward.org
