The Meridian Public Library went from a suggestion to a reality in less than one year. Volunteer citizens, working together, researched, planned and proceeded to bring the library into existence. It has a children’s area for “story time”, a children’s section of reading materials, a section for teens and a section for adult readers. The Meridian Public Library also features a collection of the ballads, cowboy songs and poetry, spiritual and ethnic songs that were collected by Meridian native John A. Lomax.
