The Des Moines Public Library’s local history blog is designed to introduce the public to the history of Iowa, with an emphasis on Des Moines and Polk County.  It is not in any way meant to be comprehesive.  Brief source citations will be provided as necessary and all resources used will either be available at the downtown library, library branches, or online. 

The Des Moines Public Library reserves the right to edit, exclude or remove any post but is not obligated to do so.
