ISSA maintains extensive collection of books, CD’s, and tapes in various disciplines of Islamic studies. Most books are in English. It also includes children collection, Arabic Books, and magazines such as Al-Jumuah, The Message, The Fountain, al-Bayan, and others. ISSA started organizing books and other items in the Masjid’s library in late 2004. Most books and CD’s that are currently in the library were purchased after this time. All items are catalogued in a master listing. A simple numbering scheme is used to identify each item. See the form at the bottom of this page if interested in abridged listing.
