On June 15, 2001, The Orange County Register reported that "Muslims disappointed with inadequate and offensive books on Islam at local libraries have responded overwhelmingly to an Anaheim [California] advocacy group's Sponsor Your Local Library drive to improve collections on the Islamic faith. The Council on American-Islamic Relations' Southern California chapter will begin delivering books today to about 50 Orange County libraries. In all, about 200 libraries are being contacted by the council in California and some other states."
