Years ago, Bella Carter was determined to create a book that would educate others on Islamic culture and help her own daughter see a reflection of herself in children's literature. Maariyah's Day tells the story of a little girl who is Muslim, what her day looks like, and the questions her friends ask. Celebrate Islamic History Month as Carter shares more about what inspired her writing and reads from her book.

Join the Orangeville Public Library and the Muslims of Dufferin as they celebrate Islamic Heritage Month. Community members of all ages and backgrounds are invited to listen to an informative panel discussion featuring speakers from the Muslim community:
Imam Soliman and Soha Soliman served as editors and supporters of Dr. Khattab's work on The Clear Quaran Series Dictionary: "Introducing the world's first picture dictionary of the Quran's 2,000+ entries, with the goal of empowering the majority of Muslims (who are not Arabs) to read the Quran in its original, rich Arabic form in just 4-6 months, without having to rely on transactions. Five years in the works, this dictionary highlights the connection between all words that share the same root. It's very straightforward, not indulging in redundant details or overly academic discussions that make the book irrelevant. For anyone who has always aspired to have a personal connection with the Book of Allah in Arabic, this dictionary is a dream come true."
Learn through the eyes of an author, a student president, and local Muslim leader, about the importance of the history of Islam and faith, celebrating Islamic culture, and raising awareness in local communities.
