Throughout the year, the library will have special events.  Additionally, they offer a book club for adults and Anime for Teens.  During the summer, they have a Summer Reading Program open to all ages.  Their focus is to help support reading readiness by providing quality books, media and great special events.  Their Technology Center now offers the public access to 10 personal computers (for one-hour sessions), two 30-minute express computers and a copier.  They offer printing from our public computers for a nominal charge.  Their computer reservation center allows you to make same day reservations for a public computer.  Come visit the redesigned Canyon Lake Library to see how it offers our members more reasons for visiting.
