About NEH’s Bridging Cultures Initiative

Former NEH Chairman Jim Leach launched NEH’s Bridging Cultures initiative almost four years ago, and since then the initiative has enriched communities across the country with high quality humanities programming. Every other Tuesday, we will share information with you on Bridging Cultures programs.

Today, we are proud to present a video about the Muslim Journeys Bookshelf, a program active in 953 libraries across the country. The libraries received the Bookshelf—consisting of 25 books, 4 films, and access to online resources—in January 2013 and have been putting on public programs over the past year. To learn more about the impact of this program, explore our one-year Impact Summary.
