Mesa residents are invited to participate in the process of City of Mesa government, and one of the most effective methods is service on one of the City's citizen advisory boards and committees.

Through this service, civic-minded citizens become involved in their local government and make recommendations to the Mesa City Council. The City in turn benefits from the knowledge, experience and expertise of citizens.

If you are a resident of Mesa and are interested in serving on the Library Advisory Board, contact Ian Linssen at 480-644-3002 or send an e-mail to for more information about the board.
