Public Libraries Bridging Cultures: Exploring Islamic History (archive - 9/29/12)

Is there a need in your library’s collection, and in your larger community, for authoritative and accessible resources about Muslim history, beliefs, and culture? The NEH grant initiative Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys will offer 1,000 libraries a collection of 25 books, three documentary films, and other resources to encourage exploration, conversation, understanding, and mutual respect between Muslims and non-Muslims alike. Experienced library programming experts will share their experiences presenting “Muslim Journeys” programs during the pilot phase, and offer ideas for submitting a successful grant proposal. Sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the ALA Cultural Communities Fund.
