In observation of Ramadan, which this year is observed from May 5 to June 4, the Lutz Branch Library, 101 W. Lutz Lake Fern Road, hosted a free event to celebrate the Muslim holy month. The event featured a book reading and a slideshow history of Ramadan, followed by a canvas painting craft. Ramadan, which is observed by millions of Muslims worldwide, is a period of fasting that lasts from predawn to sunset. The fast is intended to bring the faithful closer to God. Muslims also use this time to focus on charity, to help the less fortunate.
