Foley Library participates in 9/11 Memorial Exhibit

Posted
Foley Public Library is excited to announce its participation in September 11, 2001: The Day That Changed the World, a downloadable educational exhibit 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. Told across 14 mini posters, this exhibit includes archival photographs and images of 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. This interactive exhibit will take place starting Tuesday, Sept. 7 – Saturday, Sept. 11, on the bottom floor of the library during regular business hours. Not only can you view the 9/11 Memorial posters located in an album, but you can also create Peace Cranes and Hope Leaves to hang on our Tree of Peace & Hope. Join the library in never forgetting, but still looking forward. For more information on this library exhibit or any of the library’s other services, please call 251-943-7665 or visit www.foleylibrary.org. You can also check out the library’s Facebook page or find them on Instagram and Twitter. This 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. Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this exhibition do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for Humanities.
