#ThingsIFind Whilst Looking Up Other Things … Polish Libraries in the USA

by C. Michael Eliasz-Solomon

In one of Stanczyk’s continuing memes, Things I Find Whilst Looking Up Other Things, I was combing the Internet and was rifling through Polish Genealogical Societies. I hopped from the PGSA.org to PGSNYS.org (Polish Genealogical Society of New York State), when they mentioned, The Adam Mickiewicz Library and Dramatic Circle. Apparently, they had a Reopening of their Library on September 17, 2011. The library is located at: 612 Fillmore Ave, Buffalo, New York 14212.

That got this jester to thinking, so here is my list of Polish Libraries in the USA:

Does anyone else know of any other Polish libraries that I need to add to this list? If so, please email me.

  1. Hello,

    The Milwaukee area has an organization called Polanki that has a library located in the Polish Center of Wisconsin. More information can be found here: http://www.polanki.org/library.html

    Also, UW-Milwaukee has a suggestion webpage for Polish materials: http://guides.library.uwm.edu/archives-polishamericans

    Another potential library for Polish books and information is the Immigration History Research Center in Minnesota: http://ihrc.umn.edu/

    Best Regards,
    Al Wierzba


  2. In Baltimore, the Polish Nobility Association Foundation has the The Suligowski Heraldic Library Collection at this link:

    I’m not positive where this is held, but I believe it’s associated with Langsdale Library at University of Baltimore. Thomas Hollowak would be the contact.
