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. 

 

Library Mobile App

Use the WDM Library’s mobile app to search titles, check your account and more!

Your West Des Moines Library Gone Mobile!

Search for books, DVDs, CDs and more. Place holds or renew items, view your Library Account, check out this week’s events, and connect with us on Facebook and Twitter. You can also connect to our e-content like eBooks and eAudiobooks.  All at your fingertips with WDM Library!

The app features a great new 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”.
