One of three new portable air conditioning units installed in the Library today.
It's the last day of July and quite appropriate that the month of August should start with a bang at the local library. After having to endure the place in the sweltering heat for almost a whole month we finally have something really cool (pardon the pun) to talk about today. Upon opening it's doors at 1 PM today, library users for the first time in many days walked into a comfortable environment and were treated to the sight of three brand new portable air conditioning units that were still in the end process of being installed. The temperature is a comfortable 76.8 degrees and bound to get lower as the units kick into gear throughout the rest of the day. I think that a lot of activism by local residents since we first started to write about had a lot to do with it. Calling our local politicians and the Library certainly worked. I doubt that without that action by local citizens we would have seen this day. Let's hope that they are working on a more permanent solution for next summer.
