If you need a place to escape from the heat, several communities have set up cooling centers.
In Vilas County, libraries are encouraging you to come down to enjoy some air conditioning.
In Marathon County, the public library in Wausau will hold a heat wave movie marathon Thursday from 10 am until 8 pm.
And in Wood County you can call your local fire department to find a cooling center location near you. You can also get that information by calling the number 2-1-1.
