The Tye Preston Memorial Library serves the informational, recreational and educational needs of community residents and seasonal visitors. We value our customers and strive to treat each person with respect. We serve the community by providing meeting facilities for various educational, civic and social functions. Through our resources, programs and services, we reach out to young children, students, families, senior citizens and the community, providing a safe, friendly and inviting place to visit-a place where minds expand and imaginations soar, a place where books are only the beginning.
In 1997, the 75th Texas State Legislature passed Senate Bill 1674, relating to the creation, administration, powers, duties, operation, and financing of library districts in Texas. This legislation allows the formation of library taxing districts and permits voters to choose to dedicate a portion of their sales tax revenue to support library services. The provisions of the Library Districts Act are found in Title 10, Local Government Code, Chapter 326. On January 15, 2000, voters approved creation of the Canyon Lake Community District and elected the first Board of Trustees. This agency is responsible for management of Tye Preston Memorial Library.
