The Canon City Public Library enriches lives through encouraging learning, sharing, and creativity.
The City of Cañon City advocates funding and policies that support
the library as a great democratic institution, serving people of all ages
and circumstances, and providing the full range of materials and information resources needed to live, learn, govern, and work.
