In Fall 2012 the Camden-Carroll Library applied for a grant called "Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys". We were lucky to be one of 6 libraries in Kentucky to receive the grant. We received the Muslim Journeys Bookshelf collection in early 2013. We also applied for a complimentary grant in early 2013 for the Muslim Journeys: Let's Talk About It program. The library also won this grant, which is a book discussion program on selected books from the Muslim Journeys Bookshelf collection. These book discussions will occur during the Spring Semester 2014. This webpage will be the central location for all activities and events associated with the grants.
Let's Talk About It: Muslim Journeys
The Library has won an additional grant to host the Let's Talk About It reading and discussion program on the Connected Histories theme that is part of the Bridging Cultures bookshelf. To find out more information about these programs, please check this link.
