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. 

 

Adventure Passes

 

NOTE:  In this time of Covid-19 closures, many of these attractions are closed until further notice.  We have done our best to reflect this in the online booking interface.  

Looking for an alternative while Staying at Home?  Lots of venues around the world are offering Virtual Tours – zoos, museums and more. 

See this article on Pay A Virtual Visit To These Locations Right From Your Screen

Iowa Libraries provide free passes to area attractions for a day of family fun!  Passes allow entrance for two (2) adults and two (2) children.  Additional tickets can be purchased at the venue.
