Celebrate Croatia at Central Feb. 26: Ambassador Paro, Food and Music!

Arlington Public Library welcomes the Croatian ambassador to the United States, Joško Paro, on Tuesday, Feb. 26, 7 p.m. at Central Library. He’ll discuss his nation’s unique role in Europe as a cultural crossroads between East and West. croatia flag

Plus there will be Croatian food treats for all, cultural displays and live music performances.

His visit is the latest gesture in a friendship that began with the Library, on behalf of the U.S. Department of State, hosting Croatian information professionals for extended visits. That was followed last year by Library Director Diane Kresh’s speaking tour of several Croatian library and information sites.

Now the Library is proud to feature a wide-reaching selection of books on Croatian art, literature, business and language.

Explore Croatia through this fine collection and hear Ambassador Paro at Central on Feb. 26. Let the Library be your passport.
