“During this 20th anniversary year, it is our privilege to share these lessons with a new generation, teach them about the ongoing repercussions of the 9/11 attacks and inspire them with the idea that, even in the darkest of times, we can come together, support one another and find the strength to renew and rebuild,” said 9/11 Memorial & Museum President and CEO Alice M. Greenwald.

Developed by the 9/11 Memorial & Museum and made possible by the National Endowment for the Humanities: Democracy Demands Wisdom, September 11, 2001: The Day That Changed the World will be held at the Clarksburg-Harrison Public Library Sept. 1 to Sept. 30.

“The library is honored to share the 9/11 anniversary exhibit with our community. We hope it will give people an opportunity to pause and reflect and learn more about events of that day and consider their lasting impact. Along with the exhibit, the library will be inviting people to leave thoughts and memories that they would like to share,” said Clarksburg-Harrison Public Library Director Jill Rafter.

“The purpose of this exhibit is to allow libraries around the country to be able to mark, commemorate, educate the community about the attacks, from the circumstances leading up to it, to everything that’s happened since,” said Edward Pride, a librarian for the Clarksburg-Harrison Public Library.
