Ruiz Branch 10th Anniversary Party 

When: Fri., Sept. 30, 5:30 p.m. 2011
Price: free
Ten years ago, the public library on Kansas City's West Side moved into its fifth location and debuted its third name (this one honoring a former librarian). Sometimes referred to as the Irene H. Ruiz Biblioteca de las Americas (2017 West Pennway, 816-701-3487), this branch of the Kansas City Public Library has many resources in Spanish as well as materials pertaining to Latin America, and it employs several bilingual staff members. Some of them, including Branch Manager Julie Robinson, are on hand at the Ruiz Branch 10th anniversary party. The event includes refreshments and live music from the Alta Vista Middle School Mariachi Band and the Solis Family Band. It's also a good time to take a tour of the library. (Unlike a couple of its former locations, this new branch location, Robinson says, isn't a place where you can see all of it from any one spot inside.) A reception begins at 5:30 p.m., and a program starts at 6. RSVP at kclibrary.org/rsvp/14110.
