Son of How to Get a Des Moines Public Library Card

1. Be a resident of Iowa. Through the State Open Access program almost all Iowans are eligible for a Des Moines Public Library card. Staff can tell you if you live in one of the very few places that aren't eligible.
2. Show up at any one of our 6 locations.
3. Show us photo ID and something with your current name and address. If your photo ID all ready has your current name and address that's all you need. Bingo! If your ID isn't up-to-date, a bill, checkbook, or a piece of first class canceled mail with your name and current address on it will do.
4. We'll get you set up with a card and you can check out the same day! Yay!
5. Let us know as soon as possible if you lose your card or if it is stolen. You do not want other people using your card, because you are the responsible party if someone else checks out with it. Once you've notified us we will set the card 'Lost' and it can never be used again. Finis.

So get a card! Check out books, CDs, use the internet, just go nuts.  You'll love it!
