Obtain a Library Card

The Lyons Public Library issues library cards to residents of Lyons provided the resident is free of outstanding fines and/or fees within the RAILS Library System. Lyons Public Library cards are good at over seventy-five libraries within the RAILS Library System.

A patron must present his/her library card each time he/she wishes to check out library materials.

Should a resident’s library card be lost or stolen, it is the cardholder’s responsibility to notify the Lyons Public Library immediately.

The Lyons Public Library will issue a Juvenile library card to any person 17 or younger and able to write his or her own name.
