Check Out the Air Conditioning at Canyon Lake’s Library

Tye Preston Memorial Library, across from Canyon Lake Gorge, doubles as a cooling center for anyone trying to beat the heat.

Putting puzzles together is one of several ways to enjoy the air-conditioned splendor of Tye Preston Memorial Libarary.

Temperatures will remain above 100 degrees through Sunday, but the weather forecast for Tye Preston Memorial Library is 72 degrees with a 100% chance of fun things to do.
