This past year, the Friends of the West Des Moines Public Library  approved paying half the costs of purchasing a Ford Transit utility van for the library. Library staff uses the van to deliver materials to homebound patrons and senior living centers in our area and to get to neat events like summer lunches at Legion Park and the Valley Junction Farmer’s Market…

By the end of November, you’ll find the van more conspicuous as it travels our streets, as the Friends have also generously agreed to put an eye-catching wrap on the van. Here is a preview:

Waukee Aerial, LLC generously donated the photo featured on the wrap, which is the work of skilled drone pilot/photographer Cameron Stotz. The West Des Moines Library and the Friends Foundation greatly appreciate their time and technological know-how. Here is the original photo, which really makes one appreciate the library’s environment and location (click to enlarge):

See you on the road!
