Commemorating the 20th Anniversary of 9/11

20th Anniversary of 911

Across the country, communities will be commemorating the 20th anniversary of the events of September 11, 2001. In Piscataway, the Library presents September 11, 2001: The Day That Changed the World, a poster exhibition that recounts the events of the day through the personal stories of those who witnessed and survived the attacks. The exhibition  was created by the 9/11 Memorial & Museum in New York City. Told across 14 posters, this exhibition includes archival photographs and images of artifacts from the Museum’s permanent collection.


The Elks will hold their annual Patriot Day Remembrance Ceremony on Saturday, September 11. Join them on Saturday, September 11, at 11am at Elks Lodge #2414, located at 450 River Road (next to Riverside Park). The ceremony will be held outdoors, in the Memorial Garden, weather permitting. 


Visit the Library and come check out one of our many books available to commemorate the 20th anniversary.
