The Eisenhower Public Library in Harwood Heights is showing a special FREE exhibit now through October of 2010: American history through the eyes of Poland.

The exhibit is composed of materials from the Warsaw Main Public Library, the collection, which includes newspapers, memoirs, photographs and drawings, illustrates 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, the U.S. 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 exhibit displaying the U.S. in Polish Historiography and Periodicals from[masked] is a fascinating and compelling reminder that the relationship between the Polish and American people extends much further back in time than the formal relationship between the two countries.

Monday-Thursday: 9:00AM-9:00PM
Friday: 9:00AM-5:00PM
Saturday: 9:00AM-5:00PM
