MOBIUS Unavailable Starting April 18

The MOBIUS interlibrary loan system will undergo maintenance to switch to a new system starting Thursday, April 18. This means that patrons will not be able to request items in MOBIUS until the new system is complete. We will keep patrons posted on when MOBIUS is open to requests again on our website and social media pages. 

How can I get library books from other libraries while MOBUIS is down? 

1. Fill out our Item Request Form. Be sure to click the "Yes" option when it asks you "Borrow from another library?" A WDM Public Library worker will find the item for you and reach out once they've secured it. 

2. Visit one of the library service desk - we are happy to put in an Interlibrary Loan request for you or check to see if the item is available at a nearby library. 

3. Give us a call at 515-222-3403 or email us at and we'll work to find a copy of the material for you. 

4. Search for the item on the Iowa Locator or It will show you libraries in the area that have copies of the item you are looking for. Please do reach out to the other library to confirm they have the item before you make the trip!  

When in doubt, don't hesitate to reach out to us - we want to help you find the materials you're looking for!
