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. 

 

Botanical Garden Request Form

Adventure Pass Botanical Garden Booking Form

  • The Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden has requested at this time that all entrances be via Timed Tickets, rather than a pass for any time on a particular day. This allows them to manage crowds while social distancing orders are in place.

    Therefore, in order to make our free Adventure Passes work, your pass will need to be booked by Library staff rather than directly online.

    Please fill out the form below and we will respond to your request, book you tickets on a date/time if available, and send your Adventure Pass and tickets via email or print them for you to pickup at the Library.

    If your preferred date(s) are not available, we will let you know and you can try additional dates.

    Please put in your request at least 3-4 business days before your preferred booking dates.

    We appreciate your understanding!
