Pam, WDM Mom

Our daughter learned to read the summer before she went to kindergarten, mostly because she wanted to do the same things her older brother could do.  She then promptly informed me that she didn't like reading because it meant she had to sit still...Last night she was bursting with excitement over the reading club book she had finished and how much she thought I would enjoy it.  She made a point of leaving it on my nightstand to make sure I would get to it! Thank you all so much for making reading fun and cool and not just something Mom says she has to do. 

 

Meeting & Study Rooms

ROOMS DURING RENOVATIONS

The WDM Library will begin extensive renovations in Fall of 2019.  These will be done in several Phases through 2020 – exact dates are still being worked out, so please bear with us!

During some of these phases, certain Rooms may be unavailable for booking, so you may find them blocked off, or not listing altogether.  If you count on our rooms for regular meetings, tutoring or study groups, you will want to make other arrangements.

We have created this short list of some local room options.  It is not an exhaustive list.

Online Room Booking

Small Group Study Rooms

NOTE:  Sometime in Fall of 2019 (TBD), all the Second Floor study rooms (A-F) will be unavailable through the first phase – probably through Spring 2020.  

During the first few weeks of October, as we wait on a final renovation bid/schedule, our rooms MAY be available, but not online bookable.  PLEASE call 515-222-3403 (Reference Desk) for availability.  

There are six (6) Study Rooms located on the second floor, and a small meeting room on the first floor, with a varying range of capacity from 1 to 8 people. You can call 515-222-3403 (Reference Desk) or use our online booking system to book a room.   

Note: Only five (5) of the rooms can be booked online, up to 12 hours in advance. To book on the same day, call 515-222-3403 (Reference Desk).

Use of the Study Rooms rooms is guided by our Study Rooms Policy. (In Adobe PDF)
