Starting June 10, 2020, the Lyons Public Library will open for curb-side pick up on Lyons Library materials only, during the Library’s regular open hours. The CCRLS courier has not re-started, but hopefully soon.

You may call the Library with your requests, or place holds on our materials, and we will pull them and check them out for you. Sanitized items will be placed in a bag; you let us know when you’re out front; and we will bring them out and place them on the bench. Our book drop remains open 24/7, and currently all items are checked in fine-free, and placed on a 72 hold for sanitation purposes.

The safety of our patrons and staff are our highest priority.

When the Library re-opens, safety precautions must be followed.

Masks must be worn, and either hand sanitize or washing with soap and water for 20 seconds according to the CDC guidelines.

We have been actively cataloging new materials, preparing for the Summer Reading Program, and are excited to serve you physically once again! The Library hours are: Tue-Wed. 11:30-5:00; Thur. 1:00-6:30; Fri. 1:00-5:00 and Sat. 10:00-3:30. We are closed Sundays and Mondays. If you have any questions you may call during library open hours at 503-859-2366 or email us at Follow us on Facebook!

                                     Changes to Basic Cards!

                                                 Beginning July 1, 2016, Chemeketa Cooperative Regional Library Service member libraries will raise limits for the number of items checked out from 1 to 10 for Basic                                                    library card holders. This includes residents of Polk, Yamhill, and Marion counties, and a small portion of Linn County, who live within the CCRLS district but outside of                                                         public  library coverage. The number of holds allowed will also increase to 10.

                                                 Basic cards will remain free, as before. Totals for children using CARE cards will remain the same at 25 checkouts. Patrons may still purchase full service cards to                                                     receive the full allotment of 50 items checked out at a time. For more information, please contact the Lyons Public Library.
