Since 1987, Library Card Sign-Up Month has been held each September to mark the beginning of the school year. During the month, the American Library Association and libraries unite in a national effort to ensure that every child signs up for their own library card.
In celebration of National Library Card Sign-Up Month, the Canyon Lake Library will have free giveaways for all patrons who sign up for a new card, while supplies last.
Library cards are free; replacement cards cost $1. A state-issued ID and proof of current address are required. A child’s card requires the written permission of a parent or legal guardian.
The Canyon Lake Library is located at 31594 Railroad Canyon Rd. Operating hours are Monday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Wednesday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The library is closed on Tuesday and Sunday.
The Canyon Lake Library is part of the Riverside County Library System. For more information, visit www.rivlib.net or contact the library at 951-244-9181.
