Hanna Przybylski Joins PALA Board

Hanna Przybylski has accepted an appointment to fill a vacancy on the Board of Directors of the Polish American Librarians Association. The appointment was approved by the Board at its December 4 meeting at the White Eagle hall in Niles, Illinois.

Przybylski retired in 2012 from Chicago Public Schools after 38 years as a teacher-librarian. She received her B.A. in History in 1972 and an M.A.Ed in Instructional Media in 1980, both from Northeastern Illinois University. She is also a volunteer for the Polish Museum of America in Chicago.

“I have been an active PALA member since 2011,” says Przybylski. “As a board member I hope I can bring useful ideas and connections that will help sustain the organization in the years ahead.”

“We are pleased to welcome Hanna Przybulski to the board,” says PALA President Leonard Kniffel. “She is a wise and experienced activist in the Polish community and will be a tremendous asset as we forge ahead in advocating for more and better representation of Polish history and culture in America’s libraries.”

The appointment is for two years. Visit the PALA website for more information about the organization and its Board of Directors.
