The Central Library parking garage will close at 5:00 PM on Tuesday, April 22 to accommodate the Wellmark Grand Blue Mile Run. All staff and library customers will need to have their vehicles out of the garage by 5:00 PM.
The Central Library is located in the heart of downtown Des Moines at 1000 Grand Avenue in the Western Gateway Park near the Pappajohn Sculpture Garden. Offering unique architecture and a green roof, the Central Library has something for everyone. Our collection includes a wide variety of books, media, magazines, newspapers, microfilm, historic periodicals, city directories, sheet music and an extensive Iowa Collection. Free parking underground. The Central Library is a great place to get a book, use a computer or spend some time researching.
