News & Announcements
Library Receives Grant...Folke Bernadotte Memorial Library is among the 842 libraries and state humanities councils around the nation chosen to receive the Muslim Journeys Bookshelf award. The award is a collection of 25 books and three films from the National Endowment for the Humanities Bridging Cultures initiative, to be used to address the need of the American public for credible resources about Muslim beliefs and practices and the cultural heritage of Islam.
The recipients are being recognized for their ability to foster community conversations that bring the humanities to the public in new ways. Over the period of the award, each of the awardees will be expected to stage an event that will increase use of the collection and to collaborate with at least one community partner. The Journeys Bookshelf project is part of NEH Chairman Jim Leach’s Bridging Cultures initiative, which has highlighted the role of libraries in bringing civility into American life.
