We are looking for volunteers for a few things:
1) Setting up- The library opens at 10am, and we are looking for a few men to help set up the back drops with Brother Ahmed. The event starts at 2pm, so any help setting up in between 10am and 2pm would be greatly appreciated. If you can help, please contact sr. Amani at 425-943-0051. We are using WhatsApp to coordinate.
 
2) Muslim Wall of Fame- Sr. Nancy (nanoauntie@gmail.com) is trying to make a professional-looking poster about Muslim contributions throughout history. Does anyone already have a poster made or is artistically inclined to help produce one?

3) Attending the event- There will be an information table with books about Islam where people can ask questions.
There are a lot of activities for kids (henna, balloons, arts and crafts, calligraphy, storytelling) so please bring your kids, as well.
