Library in Canada hosts Hijab Day educational event

The Grande Prairie Public Library is hosting “Hijab Day,” an event where conservative Muslim women explain to non-Muslims why they choose to wear the head covering.

 Reports from Shafaqna News Agency say the event is part of World Hijab Day, an annual international event that took place Feb. 1. The Grande Prairie library’s Hijab Day is set for Saturday, Feb. 27, when several local women who wear the hijab by their own choice will explain why they wear it.

Jill Kergan, community services librarian, said “We see such a diverse group of people as more newcomers come, and I think it would foster a better sense of community if we understood different cultures a little better.”
