Al-Huda Sunday School Library - Update

FROM THIS:











TO THIS!!!!








Jazaka Allahu Khayrn to our masjid board who shared the vision of a children's library, and who agreed to build these shelves for us! And to Linda Delgado (Sister Widad), owner of Muslim Writers Publishing (MWP), http://www.muslimwriterspublishing.com/, and award-winning author of Islamic Rose Books (IRB), http://www.widad-lld.com/, who granted us a generous start-up award. MWP and IRB support literacy and Sister Widad dedicates the profits from the books she has authored toward buying books for Islamic school children's libraries. And to Brother Adnan A. Khattar, Sales Manager, of Islamic Book Store, http://www.islamicbookstore.com/. Brother Adnan was very generous in offering the books to Sister Widad at a discount. He was also very efficient in shipping the books out to us in a timely manner.
We look forward to the growth of our children's library, Insha Allah. We are so thrilled with our initial efforts!
Masha Allah, the teachers and students at Al-Huda school thank both Sister Widad and Brother Adnan for their generosity and commitment to Muslim children. May Allah (swt) reward both of them immensely/Ameen.

I definitely like the "after" pic more. What a good idea to start with a children's library.

Assalam-alaikam Sister Saffiyah,
the shelves full of books look great, hope they are jam-packed full soon and well-used (they won't be so pristine then though!)
