Complete 2013 AViD lineup
Do you love to browse the library shelves searching for inspiration before selecting a book and settling into a comfy chair? Or, do you quickly download an electronic or audio book to your portable device and go—to work, school, or around the world?
Any way you read, the Library Foundation helps your Des Moines Public Library system provide you with a broad array of up-to-date selections from which to choose. Your contribution to the Library Foundation also supports a variety of programs and services, such as Authors Visiting in Des Moines (AViD), the Iowa Author Awards, the summer reading programs for kids and teens, and the Read Rover outreach program for at-risk children.
