Iqra Library


Iqra Library operates under the umbrella of the Islamic Foundation of Greater St. Louis. We opened our doors in 2009 as an attachment to the main masjed and house an extensive collection on Islam and other books of general knowledge. Our mission is to “educate and help eliminate misconceptions about Islam and Muslims.” 

We are open to the public and currently have more than 700 patrons. 

Membership is $25 per year and open to residents of Greater St. Louis area.
