The Wilsonville Public Library is one of several “cooling centers” in Clackamas County during this weekend’s predicted heat wave of temperatures in the high 90s that may reach 100º. This Saturday and Sunday the Library will open at 10 a.m. and have extended hours with air conditioning until 8 p.m.; otherwise, the normal closing time on Saturdays and Sundays is 6:00 p.m.

The Wilsonville Public Library is located at 8200 SW Wilsonville Road, Wilsonville 97070; and maybe contacted at 503-682-2744; www.WilsonvilleLibrary.org.

Additionally, Brookdale Wilsonville Senior Community, 8170 SW Vlahos Drive, Wilsonville, is open as a cooling station for the general public seven days a week, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m., when temperatures reach 90 degrees or more.

Clackamas County health officials recommend taking the following precautions to avoid heat-related health issues:

• Avoid the sun and strenuous activity, especially 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.

• If possible, go to an air-conditioned building for several hours during the hottest parts of the day. Participate in activities that will keep you cool, such as going to the movies, shopping at the mall, or cooling off at a pool or beach.

• Wear a wide-brimmed hat and light-colored, lightweight and loose-fitting clothes.

• Set your air conditioner. If you don’t have air conditioning, take a cool shower twice a day and visit a public air-conditioned facility.

• Drink plenty of fluids, even if you are not thirsty. Avoid alcohol and caffeine. Those on fluid-restricted diets or taking diuretics should first consult their physician.

• Use sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 14 if planning on sun exposure.

• Stay in shaded areas whenever working outdoors.

• Check on older adults or persons with disabilities in your community who may need help coping with the heat.

• Be sure your pets have plenty of water and shaded areas.
