Gladys M., SAHM

I moved here with my family from the East coast. Where we lived the library system had limited resources and locations. Being new to the area we really tried to find ways to get to know the community as well as connect with other families and find fun activities for our daughters. The West Des Moines library really felt like a warm embrace...We love the library. I love how the staff is always wonderful and enthusiastic with children and always super helpful when I myself need help. ...The library is an asset to our community. I love it.
