The Canalave Library (Japanese: ミオとしょかん Mio Library) is a location in Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum.
It is the only library in Sinnoh and it has shelves of books, containing the myths of Sinnoh. It can be found on the northwest side of Canalave City and it is the place the player, the rival, Lucas/Dawn, and Professor Rowan meet up before the player goes to Lake Valor.
The upper floors of the library have the same layout as the lower floors, except that most of the books on the bookshelves can be read. These books are very philosophical and go in-depth into the history and existence of the Pokémon world as known. These books are considered Sinnoh myths, that many people, such as Cynthia, believe and study by. These books include, the Sinnoh Myth, which refers to Mesprit, the Sinnoh Region's Mythology, which explains why wild Pokémon appear in grass, the Sinnoh's Myth, which explains the existence of the lake guardians, the Veilstone's Myth, which tells a story about a young swordsman encountering Giratina, The Original Story, which explains the origin of the Pokémon world, A Horrific Myth, which tells a horrible tale about the lake guardians, and several other Sinnoh Folk Tales.
After Byron is defeated in the Canalave Gym, the player's rival sentences the player to the Canalave Library, before meeting up with Professor Rowan and his assistant to head up to the top floor to investigate strange happenings, when suddenly a huge explosion occurs from Lake Valor which could be heard all the way from the library. While everyone escapes before the aftershock occurs, everyone leaves the library for good.
Once the player has become the Champion, Lucian can be found in the library, choosing out a new book, since he had just finished his last one before being challenged in the Pokémon League.
In Pokémon Platinum, once the player has received the Flame Plate from the hiker in the Oreburgh Mine during the Arceus-triggered event, they can come to the Canalave Library to find that the blue bookshelves on the second floor will now contain a book detailing all of the Plate descriptions. Upon entering the second floor initially, the hiker will also give a brief description about Arceus and its connection to Dialga, Palkia, Giratina, Uxie, Mesprit and Azelf, as well as admitting to writing and contributing the book. Either a fateful encounter Arceus or an Arceus caught from the Hall of Origin can trigger the event.
Canalave Library is a small library. There are shelves and shelves of different books surrounding several reading tables and chairs. There is a sign that informs people that eating and drinking are prohibited. Not much happens on the lower floors, however people can be seen here reading about Pokémon and other books.
- In Pokémon Platinum, the top floor of the library contains a television.
