NOTE: As of late, 2020, we are in the process of moving to a different app vendor. The current app, though functional, is buggy. If you're having trouble, we recommend you instead point your phone or tablet’s web browser to: https://encore.wdm.iowa.gov
We hope to launch in early 2021 with a brand-new app! Thank you for your patience.
Your West Des Moines Library for your Phone or Mobile Device
The WDM Library has a mobile app where you can search for materials, place holds or renew items, view your Library Account and connect with us.
The app features a different way to search our catalog, designed for mobile devices. No need to search by field, no need to enter full words. Just type the first couple of letters of words and see the search in action while you type. So for books on "Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis" simply type "ja ke on".
You can also search by simple keyword.
If you find an item you want to see if we have, there is also a Scan ISBN function that uses your device's camera as a barcode scanner.
To Get the App:
Go to your phone's App Store (Droid or Apple) and search for WDM Library. Download the app.
To use the app's My Account functions, including the card number barcode display, you will need your WDM Library card number and your library account PIN.
If you need your PIN set or reset, please call 515-222-3400 and we will be happy to help you.
