From now through September 30, 2009, you are invited to view an exceptional exhibit in Warsaw’s main public library on Koszykowa Street.   The exhibit includes a variety of materials from the library’s collection, including newspapers, memoirs, photographs, and drawings, illustrating how the U.S. was perceived by Poles in the years 1764-1919. Special attention is given to key topics such as: the American Revolution, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, Polish immigrants after the November uprising, Poles participation in the Civil War, American relief efforts for Poland during World War I and the establishment of diplomatic relations between our two countries. 

As we celebrate the 90th anniversary of U.S.-Polish diplomatic relations this year, the Warsaw Main Public Library’s exhibition is a fascinating and compelling reminder that the relationship between the Polish and American peoples extends much further back in time than the formal relationship between our two countries. The exhibition  will be open for viewing at Warsaw Public Library, Koszykowa 26 till September 30, on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 2:00 pm to 8:00 pm, and Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.
