Mamma Haidara Library - HMML Repository

Mamma Haidara Library

Private library of the Haidara family and the first to be cataloged by the al-Furqan Foundation. The catalog runs to around 4,000 items but has grown substantially following the collection efforts of Abdel Kader Haidara to over 40,000 items. The collection covers a wide range of standard works in the Islamic Sciences as well as locally-produced texts.
