Also in March, Executive Director of the Museum, Larry Ann Evans, will be at the Lyons Public Library at 11 am on the 26th signing the most recent publication of the museum, “A Jail Among Us”.

In April the Historical Society embarks on a new endeavor with the Lyons Public Library, the Historical Book Club.

Interested persons can contact the Museum and talk to Larry Ann Evans or call the Lyons Library, (315) 946 9262 and talk to Teresa Streb to find out the titles of the books and the dates of the meetings.

The infamous Lock Up & Jail ‘em, a major fundraiser for the Historical Society will be May 6 at 3:30 this year. If you know someone you would like “locked up” for a good cause, notify the Museum.
