Do we have any cooling centers or air conditioned centers where people can go to cool off without having to buy food/drink? I know that the libraries are going to be closed because it gets too hot there, so what about City Hall, can our elderly folk take their lawn chairs there and sit in the cool of their halls?

The staff at the Downtown branch must envy the other staff members at the other branches who don't have air conditioning.

Excessive heat = paid day off. At the expense of taxpayers I'll be sitting at home watching TV instead of working at Mitchell Park. I hope this heat wave continues longer!

The whole air conditioning brouhaha last year was started by a woman whose child was inconvenienced on a hot day because the library was closed. She was Inconvenienced! and she didn't like it!! So she made a big noise on the web. And her overprivileged brat, excuse me, child, was inconvenienced.
Go to another branch? No way. I want what I want when I want it. Shame on the city! Air conditioning is a civil right.
Who invented weather anyway? It's inconvenient!

Today's heat was nothing like the type of heat we usually have. Although it was hot, it was not sunny and it felt much muggier.
