I love the WDM library. All the librarians help me find books but Betsy helps me the most. With her help, I find a lot of good books. At the WDM library, I can get books from good series. I enjoy the library. It's so much fun. I like reading and at the library I can find books that I enjoy. Thank you WDM library! 


Meeting & Study Rooms


We will be transitioning to a new room booking system in the next two months.  To allow development of, and transition to, the new site, we will stop automatically approving room bookings made for dates AFTER March 1st, 2017.

Continue to use the booking links below to book up through the end of February, but to book rooms for March 1st or later, please use THIS FORM.  An email address is required to book online.

These bookings will be sent to staff, and will be entered into the new system in the order they were received, once that system is ready (about mid-February).  Phone and in-person requests will be entered into the same form, so all requests will be queued in order.  If you already have a booking for after March 1st, that will be honored.

Thank you for your help as we make this big change!

Small Group Study Rooms

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) to book a room OR you can book a Study Room online (up through Feb 28, 2017 only – see note above). An email address is required to book online.

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).
