Resources Overview

Per the NEH Guidelines, libraries that received the Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys collection must host at least one public event that introduces the books and the Muslim Journeys themes to the library’s patrons and broader community. Libraries are also strongly encouraged, but not required, to recruit and collaborate with a community partner rganization.

These programming ideas, resources, and tips may be useful to libraries conducting Bookshelf programs as well as for Let’s Talk About It: Muslim Journeys (LTAI) applicants interested in planning supplemental programs. Programs beyond the five core LTAI reading and discussion programs are not required, but may help make your proposal more competitive.
