Beat the Heat Cooling Centers June - September 2019

The City of Corpus Christi will be open all senior centers and libraries to the public during normal business hours. If you don’t have air conditioning this summer, stay safe & enjoy one of our cooling centers. Reliant Energy is sponsoring three cooling centers. We’ll have water, snacks & movies for the whole family.
