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.

I was work when our boss rushed in and told us the Twin Towers had been hit. I was numb and shivers just crawled up my spine. We found later that there had been an attempt on the Pentagon also but was foiled by the passengers. We had the tv in the lobby so everyone could see the coverage and know the up to the minute news. But after awhile the coverage actually became depressing to watch and we removed the tv.
