Part Number: LM35
I have a LM35 reading 0.644 volts in a room of 70 F. It would possibly be true if it was a LM34. It does not really change values if I hold it in my fingers. Can the device be damaged by a static spark or by soldering?

It could absolutely be damaged by ESD event. You could try to create a greater temperature change to be sure it is not functional as a temp sensor.
