Exhibit at Rochester Hills Library Shares History of 9/11 Attacks

Rochester, MI – Rochester Hills Public Library (RHPL) is honored to participate in September 11, 2001: The Day That Changed the World, a downloadable educational exhibition that presents the history of 9/11, its origins, and its ongoing implications through the personal stories of those who witnessed and survived the attacks. This 9/11 Memorial & Museum curated exhibition reflects the core pillars of commemoration, education, and inspiration as we prepare to observe the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

With 14 full-color posters on display, the events surrounding 9/11 are told using archival photographs and images of artifacts from the 9/11 Memorial & 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.

In addition to the posters, the library is encouraging community members to share their memories of 9/11 for an interactive digital display. Memories may be shared by completing an online form at https://bit.ly/3gagFi6. Submissions shared with RHPL will be displayed on an overhead screen in the lobby for visitors to read.

“It is a privilege to be a part of this national movement to commemorate the 20th anniversary of 9/11,” said Juliane Morian, Library Director. “The exhibition and shared memories from the community help to highlight the lessons of that day not only with those who remember it but with a new generation as well.”

The library’s display runs from September 1 through September 30 during the regular open hours.
