Please wait until you have been notified that the item is available. If you need something more immediately, please call (515) 283.4152, extension 3 and speak with one of our librarians about expedited service.
If you don't see what you need in our online catalog, and you're a Des Moines resident, you might try our Interlibrary Loan service. We can often get what you need from another library. More »
