My family loves and treasures the West Des Moines Library.... We go to the library about once a week. We go for children's programming and fun activities, to use the internet and feel very lucky to be able to print off items we need. We also borrow movies and books. This library is our second home and I wouldn't want to be without it. Thank you for all that you do!
