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. 

 

HotSpots

The Library has Wireless Internet Hotspots for checkout!

These hotspots are available for checkout by patrons who:

  • Are WDM Residents
  • Are 18 years of age and older
  • Have WDM Library cards in good standing

These Hotspots can be checked out for one (1) week.  They offer high-speed wireless internet anywhere for your Wi-Fi-capable devices.  They can be put on hold.

To check one out, come up to the 2nd Floor Reference Desk.  Bring with you:

  • WDM Library card, and
  • A government-issued ID (driver’s license, passport, etc.)

Hotspots do not check out within 30 minutes of closing, to allow us to finish the checkout process.
