The Joint School & City Library Board establishes library policies and library hours for the A.H. Meadows Library. A.H. Meadows is both the public and and high school library of the City of Midlothian.
The City appoints three of the nine members for three-year terms and holds one permanent member position. City residency is required for membership.
The City Council's policy is to limit membership to one board/commission at a time in order to provide an opportunity for service and involvement to as many citizens as possible. Training is available to all new appointees.
