Another wave of extreme heat has descended upon central Illinois and a local entity is reminding if you need a place to cool off, consider stepping into their facility.
The Warner Library is one of a small handful of cooling centers in DeWitt County when the DeWitt County Emergency Management Agency activates them. On the WHOW Morning Show Tuesday, Business Manager Samantha Rusk told Regional Radio they hope community members will take the time to check out some of the many things you can do at the library.
Rusk also encourages checking out the 'Things of the Library'. This program has expanded in recent years thanks to contributions from the Illinois Prairie Community Foundation with things like yard games and activities for kids to even basic DIY tools.
Rusk feels there's something for anyone of any interest at the library to read about or explore. To cool down at the library, you can visit them at 310 North Quincy Street in Clinton. You can call 217-935-5174 or find them on social media on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
