Curious about the Valentine’s Day pipe-burst disaster that closed Elihu Burritt Library, and what we did during repairs? Want to know who draws those awesome whiteboard pictures in front of the Library entrance? Your professors keep telling you to use databases for your assignments – have you seen signs for the Library’s new Spotlight on E-Resources program?

The S. A. Blejwas Endowed Chair in Polish and Polish-American Studies is proud to present an exhibition:
1989: End of the System
Available for viewing in the Elihu Burritt Library in the month of June during library’s opening hours:
M-Th 8am – 7:45pm
The exhibit celebrates and commemorates the 25th anniversary of the transition to democracy in Poland. The exhibition presents the crucial role that Poland played in the democratic changes that swept the region at the end of the 1980s. It also marks the 25th anniversary of the collapse of Communism in Central and Eastern Europe, with emphasis on the role of the Solidarity movement in Poland. From the origins of Solidarity in Poland to the turning point of partially-free elections held in Poland in June 1989, the exhibition gives a comprehensive picture of the interrelated political changes taking place across the region that jointly contributed to the fall of the Iron Curtain.
The exhibition was prepared by The KARTA Center, The Consulate General of the Republic of Poland in New York and The Polish Cultural Institute New York.

Bring your friends. Register online to join us!
