Karl, Retired Pastor

The West Des Moines Library has empowered retirement days for me in two ways. One, I am able to read extensively in the newspaper and magazine sections. Two, I am able to borrow books to read rather than to purchase and keep in my now limited home library. An added feature is borrowing audiobooks to savor while I drive to visit family in other states. 

What’s Happening?
  • The Library will be Closed on Monday (Presidents’ Day) for an in-service training day. We will reopen Tuesday 9am.

  • Make a tax-deductible donation to the Library Friends Foundation in 2019!
