MUSLIM JOURNEYS BOOKSHELF COLLECTION
The Carl B. Ylvisaker Library at Concordia College will host a reception featuring some of the resources in the Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys, a collection of materials from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the American Library Association (ALA). The reception will be held from 3:30-5 p.m. Tuesday, March 19, in the library lobby. The reception is free and open to the public.
The program aims to familiarize public audiences in the United States with the people, places, history, faith and cultures of Muslims in the United States and around the world.
Major support for the Muslim Journeys Bookshelf was provided by a grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York. Additional support for the arts and media components was provided by the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art. The library is working in fellowship with Concordia’s Forum on Faith and Life.
The Carl B. Ylvisaker Library is one of 840 libraries and state humanities councils nationwide receiving the Bookshelf and hosting programs for public audiences featuring the materials. The library is located just west of the bell tower on Concordia’s campus.
