Margaret C, WDM mom

Our one-year-old son had surgery and was in arm splints for 3 weeks. ...We could not have made it through that recovery period without the Children's Department at the West Des Moines Public Library! Our son loves books and while he was in the arm splints, his affinity for books grew even more, when playing with toys was more difficult.  Even now out of the arm splints, we return for more books, with new discoveries behind each cover. The West Des Moines Public Library is an invaluable resource to us as parents and a place our little one already loves. 

 

HotSpots

The Library has Wireless Internet Hotspots for checkout!

These hotspots are available for checkout by patrons who:

  • Have WDM Library cards in good standing

These Hotspots can be checked out for one (1) week.  They offer high-speed wireless internet anywhere for your Wi-Fi-capable devices.  They can be put on hold.

To check one out, come up to the 2nd Floor Reference Desk.  Bring with you:

  • WDM Library card, and
  • A government-issued ID (driver’s license, passport, etc.)

Hotspots do not check out within 30 minutes of closing, to allow us to finish the checkout process.
