LONGMONT, Colo. (AP) — A new tax-funded district is gearing up to expand Lyons' town-run library.

The Longmont Times-Call reported Sunday (http://tinyurl.com/mwfog5k ) the Lyons Regional Library District could hire a director and begin planning for a new building in 2015.

Voters approved a property tax in the November election expected to generate about $357,000 a year. The district expects take over library operations from the town about July 1.

Lyons is about 50 miles north of Denver. The library district includes the town and some adjacent parts of unincorporated Boulder and Larimer counties.

The library has been in temporary quarters since the September 2013 flood damaged its building, a small former railroad station.

The district plans to build a larger library to accommodate community programs for children, teens, seniors and local organizations.
