Greenhouse vents

Hi all, my husband and I are building a 9x7' greenhouse on top of our concrete driveway. It is a lean-to design that butts up to a garage door, so the greenhouse may be entered by its own door or from inside the garage. My question is about vents. We live in eastern NC where the summers are atrociously hot. I plan on this greenhouse being occupied and functional from about late September until about May. Even in those "cooler" months I am concerned about excess heat buildup. We plan on using some screened windows that can be opened, and perhaps an attic vent fan in the highest part of the structure. Any advice on other venting options? Right now I am just hoping the structure stays put through the big storms we are about to have. Thanks, Julia
