Summer Check Out

Did you know that Canyon Ridge Library offers summer check out?

Parents may visit the school June 1-4 and check out up to 10 books per child. You will keep the books all summer and return them the first week of school in August. Please do not check out books if you do not plan to be here in the fall. 

We can also set up a parent account for you to access our Overdrive collection - yes it contains adult books too. 

Be on the lookout for your child's summer reading bucket list for more information!


We have e-books!
