ABOUT YOUR LIBRARY

 Present, past and future

A Busy Place Today 

Isn’t it inspiring? On any given day, you can walk into the library and feel the buzz of activities taking place. From a young child participating in story time, to families enjoying arts & crafts night, to an adult receiving help with an online job application; our library is enjoyed by all and library staff are dedicated to helping you succeed.

Have you had a chance to attend a class or event, receive help with your new e-reader, or ask staff for book recommendations? As a hub of community activity, our library draws people downtown to read, learn and connect. Your ongoing support makes all this possible.


With A Long Tradition in Canby

The best libraries reflect the values and unique qualities of the communities they serve. In Canby, our agricultural heritage is reflected in our “home-grown” approach to supporting education, lifelong learning and libraries.

In 1937 volunteers went door to door gathering donations to open our first public library. That swell of local support is still strong today, with Canby voters overwhelmingly affirming the need for a new, modern library at the heart of our community.


And An Exciting Future

Our library continues to be a thriving center of community life and continuing education. As we know, our well-loved library is struggling to meet the 21st century needs of our community.

With a new library facility on the horizon, the community can look forward to enjoying meeting & event spaces, dynamic children’s & teen areas, an up-to-date computer lab, and a range of welcoming seating options and collaborative work spaces.
