10:30 AM – 1:00 PM Sundays
Library is located at the north-west corner of the multi-purpose room on ICSGV campus.
While school is in session Library opens every Sunday between 10:30 AM and 1:00 PM. There are over 6000 books and pieces of media. Items are cataloged on computer. Most books are in English and Arabic on topics related to Islam. Some additional items are in Spanish, French and Urdu.
Library provides services to grown-ups and children alike. With the start of the WIS – Weekend Islamic School calendar year, the students come to the Library during their library hour.
Some 20 years ago the Library was established. Library hour is a program which works in conjunction with the Weekend Islamic School. Teachers of WIS are encouraged to sign up and bring their students to the library. Teachers decide on the topic and students choose the appropriate book for their book report or class presentation. The following week Library volunteers go to the respective class and pick up the books. A small token gift is given to the students who promptly return the borrowed book. On an average 25 classes per year avail this offering.
With the completion of the new building Inshallah, Islamic Library will be located on the ground floor of south east corner of the building. In addition to the availability of books the Library plans to incorporate a multimedia corner in the new library.
As always we are looking for donors and sponsors for additional expenses.
For any questions contact Library sub-committee volunteers.
Library is open during the school year.
Members can checkout 3 books for 3 weeks at a time. Students checkout 1 book a week. Mashallah we have in addition to 2000 + books and video cataloged and are available for the members to check out. Classes from Weekend Islamic School use the Library as a part of Library hour. Last semester 10 classes successfully participated in the program and used the facility.
