Details about regular activities at the Mulla Asghar Memorial Library & Islamic Resource Centre (MARC):
ASAP Classes: The After School Activities Program is held for students every school day and on Saturdays from 10:30 to 2:00. Activities include one-on-one Qur’an classes in scheduled half hour time slots and a homework club from Monday to Thursday, small-group conversational Arabic classes on Fridays, group Qur’an sessions for 3-4 year olds on Wednesday afternoons and more one-on-one Qur’an sessions on Saturdays.

Moms & Tots: This is a program for mothers with children between ages 0-5 years. The program encourages moms to spend quality time with their young ones in a relaxed environment. Come join us for a fun filled hour of Islamic rhymes, activities and a chance to make new friends. We start with some playtime, followed by circle/ rhyme time. Children then enjoy catching bubbles and then the hour concludes with a craft and a light snack. Parachute activities and book reading are also part of our program. Sessions are held every Friday @ 12 am at the JCC/Mulla Asghar Library and Resource Center. The program is free, however, we request that you donate $2 at every session you attend for program support.
