Representative David Harris presented a Certificate of Recognition from the Illinois House of Representatives to Prospect Heights Library Executive Director Alex Todd and his staff for their outstanding work in developing the "Polish Storytime" hour at the library.
The library staff, many of whom speak Polish, worked with the Polish families in the area to develop a time when children could enjoy stories, games, and songs in Polish, which is the primary language spoken in many of the children's homes. The "Polish Storytime" hour helps preserve the sense of Polish heritage that the families enjoy.
