Help Commemorate the 10th Anniversary of September 11

Where were you on September 11, 2001? How did you hear about the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon? Had you previously visited the World Trade Center in person, or have you been to the site since then? How were you affected by the events of that day?

If you have a story to tell or simply wish to share your thoughts about 9/11, please join us in observing the 10th anniversary by writing a few lines of your personal thoughts. Brief comments of up to a paragraph in length are encouraged. A selection of patrons' submissions will be displayed in the library.

Please submit your written comment to the front desk, by e-mail, or post to our Facebook or Twitter pages, by Thursday, September 8. Include your name and contact information. Those comments selected for the display will be identified by the writer's initials only.
