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 the City Clerk's Office at 480-644-2099 or send an e-mail to for more information about the board.

Prospective board and committee members must complete an application form and submit a resume, which can be completed online or printed and mailed in. If you wish to print and return the application and resume via mail, please send to:

Appointments to the boards are recommended by the Mayor and approved by the City Council.
