Construction has begun!

The Lyons Regional Library District is pleased to announce that we have our building permit and construction has begun!

Over the past few weeks Town of Lyons has been clearing structures from the new library building site in anticipation of our construction start. The Recycling Center has been moved to Second Avenue (across from the Bohn Park entrance), and the RTD long term parking has been moved eastwards to the Railroad Avenue frontage road by the new Habitat for Humanity townhomes.

On September 27th the District received its building permit, and the first order of business was to pour a new sidewalk for the Old Depot, which you can see in the photo. (Photo of the pour courtesy of Building Committee Chair Sandy Banta.  Click link below for photo)

Stay tuned for more updates on our progress and a groundbreaking ceremony announcement. 

Construction begins on new sidewalk!


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.
