Valencia’s East Campus Library has been selected as one of 800 libraries to receive the Bridging Cultures: Muslim Journeys Bookshelf from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the American Library Association.
The program aims to familiarize public audiences with the people, places, history, faith and cultures of Muslims in the United States and around the world. Throughout the year, the East Campus humanities department will be hosting a series of events, reading circles, and presentations that address the varied themes of the bookshelf. Look for notices on the Valencia Events Calendar.
The bookshelf was brought to Valencia through a grant that was written and submitted by Areej Zufari, professor of humanities with support from the Resource Development Office. An additional application to bring a bookshelf to the West Campus Library is currently pending.
