Library Receives "Muslim Journeys" Grant
The American Library Association recently selected Towson University Albert S. Cook Library to receive the Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys grant.
This collection of 25 books, 4 DVDs, and other programming resources was created to help public audiences become more familiar with the people, places, history, faith, and cultures of Muslims from the United States and around the world.
"Let's Talk About It" Grant
In addition, the National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Library Association have awarded Cook Library the Let's Talk About It: Muslim Journeys grant. As a result of this grant, the library was awarded $4500 and will be holding a series of faculty-led book discussions in early 2014.
Muslim Journeys is presented by National Endowment for the Humanities in cooperation with American Library Association Public Programs Office and Ali Vural Ak Center for Global Islamic Studies, George Mason University. The program 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.
