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.

The West Des Moines Library is pleased to offer several options for e-content – including eBooks, eAudio, online Comics! – which you can download and enjoy on e-readers, mobile devices or your home computer. One of these devices, Internet access and a WDM Library card are all you need to get started!

Enjoy Movies?  We have plenty of content to stream!
