Polish Room (University at Buffalo)
Here are a few photos of The Polish Room located in Room 517 of the Lockwood Memorial Library on the North Campus of the University at Buffalo. The Polish Room in a wonderful resource for anyone interested in doing serious research on Poland and Polonia. If you are planning a visit, parking will be an issue unless you are already equipped with a parking pass. Parking for visitors is limited to certain lots and metered areas on each campus. Visitors to the North Campus can park in the Center for Tomorrow Lot off Flint Road, without a charge and utilize the campus shuttle service. Additionally, on the North Campus, Visitor Paid Parking is available in the Fronczak Lot. There is an entry charge of $4.00 ($2.00 after 1:00 p.m.). It's about a ten minute walk from the Fronczak Lot to the Lockwood Library. Consult the VISITOR'S GUIDE for more information.
I was delighted to see copies of my old piano books and Christmas songbooks on display. I can understand why they would be considered treasures.
This is part of the Polish music collection. Music and lyrics for many tradtional Polish folksongs can be found here and are of special interest to Polonia Music. An old "Śpiewnik" (1903) is here. I've been looking all over for one of those!
