|9/11 Day of Remembrance Display at the library|
The Greenville-Butler Co. Public Library is a participant in this year’s 9/11 Memorial & Museum’s Education Exhibit, a large fourteen-poster display that will be available for viewing in the library from Tuesday, Sept. 7 to Saturday, Sept. 11.
Released this year on the 20th Anniversary of 9/11, the exhibit includes archival photographs and images of the artifacts from the Museum’s permanent collection. It explores the consequences of terrorism on individual lives and communities at the local, national, and international levels, and encourages critical thinking about the legacies of 9/11.
“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 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.
GBCPL Director Kevin Pearcey is proud for the library to participate in the exhibit.
“I think anyone who was alive that day remembers how terrible 9/11 was,” said Pearcey. “It is important for us to remember those who lost their lives that day and that we use our experience as a teaching tool for our children. 9/11 affected the lives of every American living that day.”
The poster exhibition was developed by the 9/11 Memorial & Museum and has been made possible in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities: Democracy Demands Wisdom.
