A very important library

BULLETIN: Ms. Libby Payne, Media Specialist for The Sanibel School, Sanibel, Florida, has just shared some student poems. I’m visiting their school this Friday so I’m especially happy to meet some kids in advance through their poems. To read these poems and comment, click on “Young Poets W.O.M. Poems.” Thank you Libby!

Hi everyone,

Some of you will remember Tadeusz Glowinski, the remarkable man in Poland who maintains a library in his home for the benefit of citizens of his community. Teddy lost his computer and records several months ago and is struggling to regain his equilibrium and move on with his passionate mission.

I just sent a new book to Teddy. If you are moved to assist, here’s how you can get in touch:

GLOWINSKIS’ LIBRARY
ul. Waly Jagiellonskie 20
56-400 Olesnica
Poland – Polska

Bless those who love books so much that they dedicate their lives to making them available to others. I don’t know Teddy’s needs but I’m sure he will respond to questions.

Merry Christmas from Poland

Merry Christmas 2014 from Poland

Hi everyone,

Some time ago I told you about a Polish gentleman who runs a remarkable library in his home town. Here’s the link back to that post. https://davidlharrison.wordpress.com/2014/04/11/a-remarkable-library-in-poland. Since I became represented in his library, Tadeusz had kept in touch and just now sent this picture of him holding Victoria.

I have high regard for Tadeusz Glowinski and his wonderful library, which he tends with help from his granddaughter, Daria. I don’t think he’ll mind if I share his Christmas greeting with all of you. I include his contact information in case any of you might like to send your own wishes to him.

Dear David,

I wish You a very Merry Christmas
and all the best for healthy, happy and successful 2015!

With love from

Tadeusz Glowinski, Daria, Victoria and GLOWINSKIS’ LIBRARY

A remarkable librarian in Poland

BULLETIN: Tadeusz has sent a note and asked me to post it in the comments, which I’ve done. Thank you, Tadeusz!Polish librarian holding Pirates

Hi everyone,

Let me tell you about Tadeusz Glowinski, a man who loves books. He loves them so much that he has created a library in his home in Oleśnica, Poland, a community of about 37,000. Boyds Mills Press just gave him a book of mine and my number is 9,720.

Here’s a link to this remarkable man’s list of authors. http://glowinski.olesnica.pl/biblioteka/muzeum_ilusrtacji

 
And here is a note from Teddy himself. How could anyone say no to this man?

Dear David Harrison,

a “little” before I did write to You about my library in Poland.
Now I want to tell You that I have the MAP with flags …

I have for You a pretty photo. Darunia

That girl is my granddaughter Daria, who will be librarian in the future, I think.

GLOWINSKIS’ LIBRARY has thousands of cordial contacts
with “People of books and arts” on whole the World.
On this map there are places-countries from where I have books for my library or illustrations for “Gallery of World’s Illustrations” at GLOWINSKIS’ LIBRARY. There are 89 countries !!! I dream about more and more …
That map is in my flat, in my library there is too little place!

Dear Friend, I would like to have in my library also Your book … or illustration (-s) …

Just in time there are circa 8 thousands books on 52 languages !!!!!!!!!!!!!

See please, there is the list of Illustrators in my Gallery:
