Ten years ago this Oct. 24, hundreds gathered in front of a brand spanking new 18,000-square-foot library building to celebrate the grand opening of Tye Preston Memorial Library’s new home.

The library was originally created by the Pilot Club of Canyon Lake in 1971 and was supported by donations of books and supplies and staffed by volunteers. Two years later, local businessman Harry Preston donated land in Sattler for a library building and asked that it be named in honor of his mother, Tye Preston.
