Located in the heart of the commercial and residential neighborhood for which it is named, the Waldo Branch also is a destination for residents of surrounding areas (including Kansas). That makes it one of the busiest locations in the Kansas City Public Library system, with high demand for all services, programs, and facilities – from books and computers to meeting rooms and study spaces.
