The library now has a discord server just for teens! This server is a virtual hangout space for teens that will be used for chatting, gaming, and other activities. The Public Services Librarian will be on the server as an administrator, and for anyone who has questions about programs, school, life, or if you just need someone to talk to. To ensure the security of the server and its participants, the server is by invite only. Please send e-mail email@example.com for the link to join.
On Wednesday, Oct. 14 it was confirmed that a staff member of the Tye Preston Memorial Library had tested positive for COVID-19. Our policy is that all staff that had been working in the building with the person that tested positive are encouraged to self-quarantine for two weeks. This means that the library will close as of Thursday, Oct. 15 and re-open on Thursday, Oct. 29.
Since reopening on October 5, the library has taken every precaution to prevent the spread of the virus. All books are quarantined upon return. Common areas like computers and door knobs are disinfected throughout the day. A professional cleaning company cleans and disinfects the building each evening.
The bookdrop on the drive up to the library will remain open for returns. Online services and programs will continue to be up and running.
The library parking lot is also available for wi-fi use.

The Friends of the Tye Preston Memorial Library were excited to welcome Will Dupuy and the Wilderness to perform during the Canyon Lake Reads program in March of this year, in which the book News of the World by Paulette Jiles was the featured title. However, due to the ongoing pandemic, their concert had to be cancelled. Will Dupuy has generously recorded songs from the concert for your enjoyment. We also want to thank the Texas Commission on the Arts for their financial support.
