Irene H. Ruiz Branch
The Irene H. Ruiz Biblioteca de las Americas is an anchor in Kansas City’s Westside community. The branch features a collection of Spanish-language materials – books, magazines, fotonovelas, CDs, and DVDs – and is home to a seed library offering free flower and vegetable seeds and other resources for gardeners of all skill levels.

Increase access to materials & programs.
