The idea of a library started out in 2012 when a small group of mothers and their children collected Islamic books to share amongst themselves and created a reading club for kids, named IQRA BOOCLUB, that would meet once a month to listen to a storytelling or to read a book. As the collection of books grew, a functional and active library became a vision and a goal.
ICJC Library aims to provide ICJC community members supplemental resources and tools to browse and learn from about Islam, and to instill more love and fondness for Islamic books among children and teens. It also hopes to make ICJC a more welcoming masjid to the children by providing a wider scope of activities utilizing library resources.
