Creating the library

Since the beginning of February 2011 with the support of the Foundation Ternopilska, local government and the municipal library the department of Ukrainian Books was established in Zyrardow. We started the collection of Ukrainian literature and periodicals. Our request is directed to individuals, publishers, NGOs and other donors.

Library for migrants – a new model for the implementation of the Ukrainian literature in the Polish environment where the people staying for years have a great demand in the printed word. Let us hope that this new model will be successfully adopted in Zyrardow and multiplied over time and implemented in many local libraries in Poland, where there is high demand for Ukrainian literature.

On December the 30th 2011 in the premises of the Public Library of Zygmunt Jan Ruml in the Southern Prague district of Warsaw an agreement  on cooperation was signed between the Library and Foundation Ternopilska. From the Foundation’s side its founder Marija Jakubowycz was present while the library was represented by director Miroslaw Majewska.

Under the signed agreement, the parties committed themselves to achieving a common ground for cooperation on education and culture, as well as to conduct the information policy on the activities f the Library and Foundation.

Foundation Ternopilska had transferred to the libraby a collection of 500 books in the Ukrainian language in order to develop the multicultural library. Books provided by Marija Jakubowycz constitute the basis of the collection in the Ukrainian language, which we intend to gather in the premises of the library, in addition to their existing collections in 7 languages that the library already possesses.

Therefore, we turn to you with a  request to give books and multimedia in the Ukrainian and other languages. Our request is strong due to the fact that in Poland the purchase of books in the Ukrainian language is not really an easy task.  Bringing a bigger amount of books from Ukraine is a hard task due to restrictive customs regulations.

So we would be very thankful for your your support!

Interested persons and donors please contact the Foundation!
