The Friends of TPML are participating in the Big Give this year, which is being held on Thursday,

September 23rd.  This is 24 hours of online philanthropy – midnight to midnight, giving you an opportunity to support our library from the comfort of your favorite chair, just using your laptop and your credit card!  Simply click on the following:

We can all agree that this library is certainly the heart of our Canyon Lake community.
We enjoy taking advantage of Books, Magazines, Movies and Reference support.
We have access to Computers & Technical Support, along with other internet capabilities and access.
A wide variety of community meetings are held at the library.
Prior to COVID, we even were able to enjoy a large assortment of interesting in-person Presentations, as well as Concerts, Events and other Arts, all at no cost.

But very specifically, this year your donation dollars will be used to help grow the library to better accommodate our ever-expanding population.  A new and exciting building renovation has been proposed for 2022 that will not only provide much needed sound mitigation features for the main Library, but will also function to enhance the learning environment in the Children’s Area, giving everyone a more enjoyable and rewarding experience when visiting the library.

Your generosity will help to make this happen.  Your library is building for the future but we can’t do it without You.  And there are even matching funds available that will double your generosity on the Giving Day.

Any donation is greatly appreciated and every dollar you contribute will have a positive impact.  Thank you for your support!

Together we can make a difference.

Library Update

Tues. Sept. 7, 2021, the library will implement some changes in order to comply with current CDC and County Health Department recommendations regarding the spread of the Coronavirus.  We will close at 6pm, M – Th. Our Fri., & Sat. hours will remain the same.  Evening groups will need to adjust their hours or meeting place.  Groups will be encouraged to enter through the outside meeting room doors.  The Library highly encourages following the CDC and County Health Department recommendations for people to social distance, wear a mask, and use the cleaning supplies provided by the library.  Any and all changes will be posted on our Website and social media.  Curbside, inside browsing, pick up of reserve items, and computers remain available during open hours.

The safety of our community is the highest priority and the Board of Trustees meets regularly to revisit policies. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Library Director Rachel Keeler at
