On September 10, 2002 the Los Angeles Times reported that "using a successful Southern California program as a model, an Islamic advocacy group launched a campaign [Library Project] Monday to combat myths and misinformation about Muslims that many believe have become more prevalent since Sept. 11. The national campaign, in which the public can purchase a package of 18 books and videotapes for donation to a local library, is a response to attacks against the Muslim religion and a heightened curiosity in the faith since Sept. 11."
