Welcome to the Islamic Resource Center's new blog!
For those of you new to our organization, the Islamic Resource Center, opened in 2010, is the first Islamic library in the state of Wisconsin. Its parent organization, the Milwaukee Muslim Women's Coalition, has been working with the Greater Milwaukee Area for over 20 years to promote an accurate understanding of the Islamic faith in our society and interfaith dialog between principle members of our ever-growing community.
The Islamic Resource Center (IRC) has been hard at work adding new materials and collections, better organizing existing collections, and finding and creating new and better programming to meet your needs. We have been fortunate enough this past year to add Young Adult, Children's Media and World Languages collections, are hard at work providing you with programs such as Poetry Slam Nights, Author Talks, Book Club, and monthly Networking Brunches, and working with our community to bring you International Women's Day, the Milwaukee Muslim Film Festival and interfaith events for all ages.
I am your librarian here at the IRC. I will serve as your guide, giving you a backstage pass to the workings of the Center. We are thrilled here for all of the changes that have gone into what we hope will be an even better place to find updates on events and Center activities, new books and other exciting opportunities.
Stay tuned for news and updates as we continue to expand our horizons.
