The Muslim Journeys Bookshelf goes up on our Round Wall next week. The Muslim Journeys Bookshelf is a collection of 25 books and 4 DVDs to help people in the United States become more familiar with the people, places, history, faith, and cultures of Muslims around the world and within the U.S. The Bookshelf is intended to address the need and desire of the American public for trustworthy, accessible resources about Muslim beliefs and practices and the cultural heritage associated with Islamic civilizations. It's a grant from the National Endowment of the Humanities and the American Library Association, and we're delighted to present it to you.
We also invite you to a presentation Thursday, April 4th called An Introduction to Islam. Two speakers hand-picked by the people of the Islamic Society of Greater Houston and Al Salam Mosque in our neighborhood will be presenting the basics of the faith. As well there will be artifacts and food! That's 2 pm.Thursday, April 4th, in Room E 100. (Walk through the library; across the back patio, into the Commons Building, and into the first hallway on the right. The entrance to E-100 is on your immediate left.)
The library will also have a display of Islamic artifacts in the 2nd floor cabinet and artwork in Room L-129 for you to enjoy through the month of April.
