Governance

The Lyons Regional Library District was created in September 2013 to build and operate a new library following the disastrous flood that destroyed much of the library and 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 separate board of trustees appointed by the Town of Lyons, Boulder County and Larimer County.  The Lyons Regional Library District serves people in both Boulder and Larimer counties.

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

Current Board Members:

Kathleen Crane, President
Lori Adams-Weaver, Vice President
Erin Biesiada, Treasurer
Darcie Sanders, Secretary
Lisa Sobeniak, Member-at-Large
Sarah Catchpole, Member-at-Large
Sandy Banta, Member-at-Large
