In remembrance of Sept. 11, 2001: A virtual film presentation

Posted

LA SALLE - In remembrance of Sept. 11, 2001, the LaSalle Public Library will offer a virtual film presentation created by the National September 11 Memorial & Museum. The film presentation takes viewers into the Memorial and Museum in New York. It recounts the attacks, the heroism and the remembrance through artifacts, many that were once part of the Towers’ structures, and later, which were essential evidence in understanding the attacks and their aftermath. Other artifacts are more personal with stories that, despite two decades of news coverage and books, may be new to many.

The film presentation was created as a special project of the Adult Education group of the Memorial and Museum, especially to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks and to provide an avenue for remembrance despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

The virtual presentation will begin at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 11. The presentation is free and open to all. To register online, please go to https://bit.ly/2USVtpK. For more information, contact the LaSalle Public Library at (815) 223-2341 or e-mail Rachael Blomquist at rblomquist@lasalle.lib.il.us.
