It has been recognized since the earliest period of Islam the importance of mosque as a centre of Islamic educational institution. Attached to the mosque is a library of certain magnitude and importance. Most of these libraries are administered by mosque administrators, whose level of competencies in information and communication technology is assumed to be low. A study to assess the level of competency related to ICT was undertaken. The findings are based on a total of 25 returned questionnaires from mosque library administrators in three mosques in the Klang Valley. Only in three areas of ICT, namely word processing, electronic mail and Internet that mosque administrators exhibited a high level of competency. The respondents reported that it is important to apply ICT for the purpose of religious instruction, da’wah activities, provision of community services through the website and in the daily business of the community
