The Irene H. Ruiz of the Kansas City Public Library Commemorates its 10th Anniversary with a Musical Celebration

One of the staples of Kansas City's Westside community, the Irene H. Ruiz Branch of the Kansas City Public Library commemorates its 10th anniversary with a musical showcase.

The event takes place on Friday, September 30, 2011, at 6 p.m. at the Irene H. Ruiz Branch, 2017 W. Pennway St. A 5:30 p.m. reception precedes the celebration.

Among the acts to perform will be the Alta Vista Middle School Mariachi Band and the Solis Family Band. Refreshments will be provided while a tour of the branch is conducted.  The branch, named for former librarian Irene H.

For the past six years, the branch has played host to a back to school celebration that provides supplies to more than 1,000 children.
