October is Polish Heritage Month, and libraries across America–school, academic, and public–will be be mounting displays and programs celebrating the historical and cultural contributions of Poles around the world. Since 1608, when the first Polish American settlers arrived at Jamestown, Virginia, Polish people have been an important part of the American dream of freedom and prosperity without oppression. The Polish American Librarians Association invites you to share with your colleagues stories of successful events at your library on Facebook.
Visit the National Today website for more information. You don’t have to be Polish to celebrate Polish Heritage Month!
