Remembering September 11th, 2001

As we approach the tenth anniversary of September 11th, I, like many people, find myself turning to memories of that day. In honor of this significant anniversary, we've gathered together a display of non-fiction titles, on display near the Recommendations Desk. The Youth Services Department will also be creating displays for younger readers. Parents who are looking to discuss this day with their children may find The Day Our World Changed: children's art of 9/11 helpful. Parents may also want to check out PBS's guide on how to discuss upsetting news events with your children.

Fiction Titles about the events of September 11th and its aftermath

Histories, Memoirs, Political examinations, Biographies, and other NonFiction titles about September 11th

The Internet Archive has a collection of television news coverage, domestic and international, from the week of September 11th, 2001 online. Along with 3000 hours of video, they include a selection of scholarly analysis of the events of that week.
