That's not an "L" with a stroke; it's a completely different letter that just looks like an L with a stroke.

The letter L (uppercase) / l (lowercase) looks the same in English and Polish.  See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polish_alphabet#Letters

The letter Ł (uppercase) / ł (lowercase) is another letter.  In Polish, it is pronounced similarly to the letter W in English.  See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C5%81
