Ridgewood residents looking for relief from this weekend’s heat wave can visit the Queens Public Library branch at 20-12 Madison St. during special Sunday opening hours.

The Queens Public Library will open 11 branches around the borough that are normally closed on Sunday, to serve as City-designated cooling centers.

The locations will be open from noon to 5 p.m. The Madison Street branch’s normal operating hours the day before, on Saturday, are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

This weekend’s heat wave is expected to bring dangerous temperatures, with a heat index reaching up to 111 degrees, according to Mayor Bill de Blasio’s office.

NYC Emergency Management Commissioner Deanne Criswell said that “these temperatures are not to be taken lightly” and urged anyone who doesn’t have AC to visit a cooling center.
