The administrative board is appointed by the members of the Hinds County Board of Supervisors and the members of the Jackson City Council. Each funding authority appoints seven board members, making a total administrative board of fourteen members. The system began with 12 branches and in the past twelve years has grown to 15 branches. The Eudora Welty Main Library is located in downtown Jackson.
