About the Library
Meadows Library is a joint public and high school library, funded in partnership by the City of Midlothian and Midlothian ISD. The library is located at Midlothian High School but is open to the public with borrowing priviledges extended to local residents and MISD students and staff.
Checking Out Library Materials
Students can check out up to five items for a period of three weeks. At the end of the check-out time, items may be renewed for another three weeks. Items with holds on them may not be renewed. Students are required to have their school ID in order to check out and renew materials.
Public patrons will need to apply for a library card to borrow materials, sign up for access to digital materials through OverDrive, and to reserve library spaces for specific activities. Library cards are free to local residents. The following is needed to apply:
- Picture ID
- Proof of current address (driver's license, bill statement, etc.)
Items Available for Checkout
Meadows Library offers books, ebooks, digital audiobooks, and books on CD for check-out to students and public patrons. DVDs are available for check-out to individuals over age 18.
Please return items by the due date indicated on the check-out receipt. Overdue items will incur a late fee of $.10 per item per day for books and $1.00 per item per day for DVDs. Patrons, including students, are responsible for lost or damaged items and will be charged the cost to replace any lost/damaged items. Any student owing an obligation at the end of the year will be placed on a hold list for diploma or schedule pick-up.
The library is open Monday - Thursday from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm, Friday from 8:00 am - 4:00 pm, and Saturday from 10:00 am - 4:00 pm. The library is closed on Sunday and has an abbreviated schedule over school breaks. Access to the school will be closed off at 4:00 pm Monday – Thursday.
