Collections & Services

63,000 items include DVDs, CDs, audiobooks, magazines, and newspapers. The branch has a strong Spanish language collection.


Located in U.S. Congressional District 20, TX State Congressional District 118, TX State Senate District 19, and City Council District 3.


Originally built in 1969, the Pan American Branch was expanded to 9,000 square feet in 1987 with funding from the Community Development Block Grant. Additional expansion was done in 1999, converting the meeting room into the staff area and a quiet reading room.

A new meeting room, restrooms, and an expanded public area were added. The most recent renovation in 2008 included new carpeting, repaved parking lot, and renovated restrooms. The branch is named for its adjacency to the highway known as the Pan American Expressway (IH 35 South).
