Libraries revisit Islam

Lee Hadden notes The Washington Times has This Article on an effort by the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations to promote a kinder and gentler Islam in the nation’s 16,298 public libraries.

The effort, called the Library Project, was announced at a press conference in September last year. A year later, CAIR has succeeded in ordering about 6,900 sets of 18 Islamic books, tapes, DVDs and videos for libraries nationwide.
The effort coincided with librarians’ frantic efforts to stock collections on anything to do with Islam, biological warfare, terrorism or Osama bin Laden — the mastermind of the September 11 attacks.
