As medical experts in Kalamazoo and Battle Creek warn, extreme heat is dangerous and can kill you. Drink lots of water, and keep hydrated. If you can, get to a cooling station, like a Kalamazoo Public Library branch.
The Kalamazoo Public Library is hoping to build a "Library of Things" that patrons could check out free of charge. Tools, cooking appliances, etc. Know of something that should be added? They're currently conducting a survey.
