Since 1608, when the first Polish settlers arrived at Jameston, Virginia, Polish people have been an important part of America’s history and culture.
In 2017, Polish Americans will mark the 36th anniversary of the founding of Polish American Heritage Month, an event which began in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and became a national celebration of Polish history, culture and pride. In addition, October 11th marks the 238th anniversary of the death of General Casimir Pulaski, Father of the American Cavalry and the International Year of Kosciuszko, Hero of Poland and America. Read about the exploits of General Pulaski and more from the Library’s hand-selected collection of literature at the 2nd floor display table.
