Bahá'í Library Online

Introductory     New     Forum     RSS
We're back! The Baha'i Library was somewhat dormant the past five years, while its founder (Jonah) was busy with multiple jobs and young kids. Thanks very much to Brett Zamir for extensive programming updates and for overseeing the posting of 325 new items! For 2010 I'll be focussing on editing and cleanup.
