Small book display on Women and Islam , part of Women's History Month 2010
When putting together the book display for Women's History Month, which can now be viewed in the library's third floor, I came across a few books on topics about women in the Arab world and women and Islam. I decided to create a second smaller display to promote these books. This display is located in the second floor, in one of the flat cases next to the computer lab. Like our other book displays, the books in the case are available for check out. Just ask the friendly folks at the Circulation Desk to open the case for you. The following books are featured. They are listed by author's last name, and they are usually located in the library's General Collection (third floor stacks) unless otherwise noted.
