Cool off at hospital, YMCA, or North Bend or Snoqualmie Libraries during weekend heat wave

Various air conditioned locations will be open to the public this weekend due to a heat advisory issued by the National Weather Service in Seattle. The heat advisory will be in effect until 9 p.m. on Sunday, June 29.

Snoqualmie Valley YMCA, Snoqualmie Library, North Bend Library, and Snoqualmie Valley Hospital will all be open to the public as places to cool off and get out of the heat during this time. Water, drinks with covers or caps and light snacks are allowed at each location. The hospital also has a public cafeteria and dining room.

In excessive heat it is important to watch for signs of heat exhaustion or heat stroke and call 911 if you or someone you know are experiencing symptoms. King County animal control officers will also respond to calls about animals having problems due to the heat.
