September 11 20th Anniversary

September 11, 2001 | The Day That Changed the World

September 11, 2001 is a day many will never forget. It began as a beautiful late summer day for most of the country but soon became an unimaginable tragedy. Twenty years later, the events of 9/11 are still remembered as one of the darkest days in modern history. 

To learn more about the events of 9/11 and the history both before and after the attacks, the Library has many resources online and in the branches.
