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. 


Meeting & Study Rooms

Rooms During Renovations and Covid-19


Due to public health concerns and construction in the building, Meeting and Study Rooms will be CLOSED until further notice.

We do have some tables in the building for single study.  There is Wi-Fi throughout the building.

The WDM Library is undergoing extensive Renovations through Spring of 2021, which will limit study space severely.  Please plan accordingly.

Watch our website and/or our Room Reserve page for changes.

Thank you for your understanding.
