Share Your Story

You belong at your library!

Every day, people of all ages and backgrounds in communities across the country turn to their libraries to find jobs or go online, to get help with homework or complex research projects, to start a business plan, connect with their kids, or simply find a space to relax.

For every person who loves libraries, there is a story about what the library means to them. We want to collect and share those stories. Is the library important to you? Do you have a story to tell? Parents, have you had a “Connect with your kids” moment at the library?

The American Library Association is collecting library stories and we want Des Moines library users to be represented. If you have a story you’d like to share, please go to:
