Children in the elementary schools on Kezmarska and Laca Novomeskeho streets in Kosice were very pleased recently to receive English books which had "immigrated" to
Slovakia from the USA. Helping to arrange the collection for this first consignment of literature were Katherine Goodish, Albina Senkova from the Western Pennsylvania Slovak Cultural Association,
AnnLee Sprinkles of Barnes and Nobles Booksellers, and Denisa Tucekova, wife of USSK GM Purchasing Martin Tucek. The collection was made up of donations from American and Slovak families,
particularly of Kosice steelmakers working at the Pittsburgh headquarters. In the next few days another delivery of English literature is expected to arrive in Kosice from Pittsburgh.
