West Des Moines Library Kids

Hey kids and caregivers…

Welcome to the Library!

This area of the Library’s website is an early literacy resource for parents, teachers, and caregivers of young children. Our Library’s Youth Services Department staff highlight tools to help children develop into readers, including book lists for children, information on our programs for young children and elementary students, early literacy information, and the Children’s Department Blog.  You can also find information on our many programs for young people. Welcome!
