Effective July 1, 2020, all Windsor Heights residents have the opportunity to be full-access patrons of the Des Moines Public Library.

Library Benefits

* Access to the catalog and the 500,000+ books, CDs, DVDs, and audiobooks offered for checkout. A dedicated team of librarians works daily to make purchases specifically for DMPL patrons based on wait times, requests, and industry trends.

*Free access to tens of thousands of downloadable eBooks and eAudiobooks on multiple platforms and apps, selected specifically by the team of collection librarians.

*Free access to Kanopy, the streaming video service with thousands of classic and modern films for adults and children.

*Dozens of digital resources, educational tools, digital programming, community resources, and much more at dmpl.org.

FAQ
*How do I get a card? 
Visit https://www.dmpl.org/get-card to get your card online. You can apply at anytime and Windsor Heights residents will automatically get digital access on July 1st.

*Is the Des Moines Library open? 
The Des Moines Library is closed to the public due to COVID-19, but they do offer curbside pickup. Learn more at https://www.dmpl.org/now-available-curbside-pickup.

*Do I no longer have access to the Urbandale Library? 
Windsor Heights residents still can use the Urbandale Library, but no longer have digital access there.

*I had a Des Moines Library card years ago, can I still use it? 
The Des Moines Library purges inactive members every three years so any cards older than that will not work. You will need to sign up for a new card.
