WHAT IS A WARMING CENTER 
A Warming Center is a safe place where anyone in the community can come inside to get temporary relief from the cold weather during normal operating hours. Pets are not permitted inside Warming Centers. If someone arrives with a pet, facility staff will contact Animal Services to provide pet support.  

More information on this Warming Center activation is available from the Austin Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management.

Material check-out, library computers, and printing services will not be available at the two APL locations that are serving as Warming Centers.
