About Lyons Library

The mission of the Lyons Public Library is to open the door to lifelong learning, promote the advancement of knowledge for a strong community, and provide cultural and recreational activities.

1936


  • Attributed with the inauguration of the Lyons Public Library, Mrs. Ruth Ingalls Mitch, a civic minded citizen, with the cooperation of several local school teachers, decides the village needs a lending library; the prominent woman collects a few books and opens a library in her home. This arrangement proves to be so successful that a need is soon realized for larger accommodations.
  • 1938
