Room Booking at the Library
Rooms can be booked online up to a day ahead - contact the Adult Services Desk at 515-222-3403 for same-day options.
If you are booking the room for a meeting or interview that starts at a certain time, we strongly recommend you book the room for at least 15 minutes ahead and allow enough time for the meeting to end. Rooms are booked back to back and we cannot always extend a reservation.
The Public Use of Quiet Study and Meeting Rooms Policy applies to use of all rooms on the second floor. You must be 18 years of age or older to book a room on second floor.
The Public Use of Community Room applies to the Community Room.
The Public Use of Teen Study Rooms policy applies to the rooms in the Teen Center. These are booked only through Youth Services staff. Call 515-222-3405.
We are not cleaning the rooms between uses, so please evaluate whether these would be a good fit for your needs.
If you prefer a more open study space, we have many tables in the building with power nearby. There is Wi-Fi throughout the building (SSID: Library Public) that also extends to areas of the parking lot.
Private functions: Unfortunately, our policies don’t allow for room bookings of a social nature (like parties or showers) or activities by for-profit entities. You may want to consider WDM Parks and Recreation facilities like the VJ Activity Center, Raccoon River Park Nature Lodge or the RecPlex. Contact WDM Parks and Recreation for information and booking. Private businesses may also have some booking options.
