Muslim Journeys Bookshelf

Henderson Library is one of 843 libraries and state humanities councils in the United States to be awarded the Muslim Journeys Bookshelf by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). The Bookshelf is a collection of twenty-five books, three films, an online database, and other resources designed to introduce the American public to the complex history and culture of Muslims in the United States and around the world. Developed by the NEH and the American Library Association based on the advice of scholars, librarians and other public programming experts, the Muslim Journeys Bookshelf is intended to provide accessible resources about Muslim beliefs and practices and the cultural heritage associated with Islamic civilizations. The Averitt Center for the Arts and the Statesboro Regional Libraries are partners in this award.  The award includes a year’s subscription to the Oxford University
