The Board of Trustees of the Lincoln City Libraries is an administrative board appointed by the Lincoln City Council.

The Lincoln City Libraries Board of Trustees meets the third Tuesday of each month. From time to time it may become necessary to reschedule meetings. If circumstances make it prudent and necessary in any one month, the regular meeting of the Board may be rescheduled with the approval of at least four members of the Board, following notification of all seven Board members. Special meetings may be called at the discretion of the President, or when a request is made to the President by three Board members. Unless otherwise noted, the meetings are held at 8:00 AM and in the Board Room of the Bennett Martin Public Library, 14th & N Streets, Lincoln, Nebraska. The following is a list of the meeting dates:
