One of the very best things about Urbana is our amazingly diverse community. I grew up in small towns where nearly everyone spoke the same language, believed in the same religion, and often spent their whole life living in the same town. In fact, nearly everyone seemed to be related! I've loved living in Urbana where I still have a small town sense of community and connection, but also get to meet and know people from so many different backgrounds. This Saturday from 11 - 1pm the library is partnering with the Muslim American Society for "Know Your Muslim Neighbor." This family-friendly event is a chance to meet new people, try new experiences, taste new food, and enjoy conversation with local Muslims. Stop by and say hello!
