De-Stress Changes Time
Due to conflicts with new programs and classes, the De-Stress book club will be moving its meeting time from 10-11:30 AM to now be from 1-2:30 PM. We hope this new time works better for everyone involved and allows those interested in the classes on Martin Lings' "Muhammad: His LIfe Based on the Earliest Sources" now starting Sunday mornings to attend without conflict. Books on this and others are available in our library and bookstore.

IRC Book Club is Starting a New Book
The IRC book club would like to invite you to join us for our new book. We know you are all busy individuals and sometimes there just isn't enough time in the day to read a whole book every month and setting a time aside during the day doesn't always work. Just because you're busy doesn't mean you can't join a book club. The original IRC Book Club reads just one chapter a month and meets in the evenings here, at the center. It is open to both genders and starting this month we will be reading "Brokers of Deceit" by Rashid Khalidi. Books are available for lending or purchase. We would love to have you attend.
