Cooling centers are facilities where you can go to cool off during extreme heat. In Dutchess County, many local libraries serve as pre-designated cooling centers. Local municipalities may also offer additional cooling centers options. Check with your local municipality to learn more about other possible cooling center options.
Please call before you go to confirm hours and availability!
Shopping centers, movie theaters, local historic sites and museums and many local parks are also great places to beat the heat!
Please call before you go to confirm hours and opening status. Check with your local municipality to see if other cooling center options may be opening in your community during extended high temperatures.
