PERRYSBURG — Community members are invited to bring personal items documenting the history of the Islamic community in the Toledo area to Community Scan Day on Sunday. Bowling Green State University’s Center for Archival Collections and the Islamic Center of Greater Toledo are partnering on the event, which was made possible by a $12,000 Common Heritage Grant supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities.

“We are excited to partner with the Islamic Center of Greater Toledo to work toward the ongoing preservation of materials documenting the region’s Islamic heritage,” said Michelle Sweetser, head of the Center for Archival Collections. “Muslims have been an important part of the cultural and religious fabric of the area and it is important that we document and preserve that history while we are able to do so.”
