From the Director's Office                

I would like to take this moment and wish everyone a healthy and prosperous New Year. As in any new year, there are always times for changes and improvements. As the director, I have heard many suggestions and would like to implement them all. Unfortunately, that is not always possible. I will, however, continue to listen to patron suggestions and do the best I can to implement them in order to make the Lyons Public Library the best it can be. I will continue to have a friendly, knowledgeable staff, programming for all ages, and make necessary changes to improve the library. Your suggestions
are always welcome and appreciated.
 —Daniel M. Powers Director
