The Lyons Regional Library District was created in September 2013 to build and operate a new library following the disastrous flood that destroyed the library and much of the Town of Lyons. On July 1, 2015, the Library officially became the Lyons Regional Library District and began to serve its expanded population. The Library District generally covers the same area as the Lyons Fire Protection District and is governed by a board of trustees appointed by the Town of LyonsBoulder County and Larimer County. (View the district map here.)  The Lyons Regional Library District serves people in both Boulder and Larimer counties.

All Library Board of Trustee meetings are open to the public.
