Our Collection

Patrons using our library have access to the entire collection of more than 61,000 items, including
adult and juvenile books, DVDs, music, newspapers, magazines, audio books, computer software &
more! We have online databases for research and word processing & spreadsheets on PC's
available to the public. We also have free Internet access!

E-Readers Available for Checkout
E-readers come preloaded with a wide variety of fiction, mystery, sci-fi and classic literature for
adults and young adults, as well as biography and non-fiction history, how-to, self-help, religion,
and current events. As with all our collections, we gladly accept suggestions for title to be
added to the readers. Sony Readers and Barnes and Noble Nooks will circulate for a
fourteen-day loan period, with 1 renewal period allowed if no other resident is waiting, to users
with a valid Lyons Public Library card in good standing. Overdue charges accrue at the rate of
$5.00 per day. Borrowers must complete a loan agreement accepting responsibility for any loss or damage to device and cables, and costs of repair or replacement attributable to a borrower will
be charged to that borrower. All e-readers are due back to the desk from which they were borrowed; they may not be returned in the book drop or to another library.
