Letter to Libraries
Next month will see the start of the holy month of Ramadhan, a month of fasting and worship for Muslims all over the world. This is a special time for Muslim children, many of whom will fast from dawn to sunset for the duration of this month. It will also include special night prayers at different mosques. The month will end with Eid- a festival to celebrate the obedience to God during the holy month.
We would like to know if your library is interested in any of the following:
- Purchasing books on the month of Ramadhan. These would help both Muslim and non-Muslim children alike to understand this special time better. We are attaching a list of books available. We will be pleased to order them for you if you so wish.
- Setting up a display on Ramadhan in the library. We could help you set a display with pictures and information to allow patrons to become more informed about this special month.
- Conducting a program for young children on Ramadhan, or Eid – the festival that occurs at the end of the month. Our volunteers will be happy to come and conduct stories and crafts for this program.
We look forward to your positive response.
