September 11, 2001: The Day That Changed the World

Please join us on September 10th at 12:00 noon for a special virtual event to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States. This program is made possible by the 9/11 Memorial and Museum in New York, New York. We will remember the victims, heroes, and survivors of 9/11 through personal stories from 9/11 family members Cait LeaveyBrielle Saracini, and John Spade, first responders from the FDNY and PAPD, and a student on 9/11. This virtual event will be hosted by the South Carolina State Library and will give participants an opportunity to ask questions through a live chat with 9/11 Memorial and Museum staff and to share their own memories in a discussion with State Library staff and fellow participants following the program. Participants can join the virtual event via Zoom or view the program at a screening at the State Library.
