The Canyon Lake Library is truly a community library.  It opened in 1980 in a 750 square foot facility.  Initially started by the Canyon Lake Women's Club, the library was a completely volunteer enterprise.  Volunteers ran the library and materials were dontated items.  The library acquired bookshelves, chairs and card tables through the donation of trading stamps (Blue Chip and S&H).  The library next became a "station" in the Riverside County Library System in 1982.  A move with an expansion and becoming an official branch in the system occured next in 1985.  Two more moves/expansions occurred, bringing the library to its current 2,725 square feet, including its own children's room.

This library has always been extremely fortunate with the communicty volunteering or being employed at the library (some as long as 20 years!). Other Canyon Lake Clubs have also contributed to the success of this library throught the Friends of the Library group.
