Ogniwo’s collections include artefacts, a reference library featuring many rare volumes, and unique archival records.
The Ogniwo library includes over 1,000 titles, including many rare and out-of-print volumes. Of special interest are local histories and publications, volumes related to Polish and Polish-Canadian history, and immigration, settlement, and prairie histories. In addition, the library holds many out-of-print and rare copies of Polish plays as well as religious and theological texts published in the 19th century. Ogniwo library is a reference library only. One of our dedicated volunteers will happily help you retrieve the materials you’d like to consult. A scanner is available on-site for your research needs.
