National September 11 Memorial and Museum at the World Trade Center Foundation, Inc. (New York, NY 10281-2103)
Cliff Chanin (Project Director: January 2020 to present)
Traveling Exhibition and Public Programming to 20 Libraries Across the United States in Recognition of the 20th Anniversary of September 11, 2001

Implementation of a panel exhibition, public programming, and librarian training for twenty libraries across the country.

The terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 were a world historical event that resulted in the largest loss of life from a foreign attack on American soil and the greatest loss of rescue personnel in a single event in American history. In 2021, America will commemorate the 20th anniversary of the attacks. In recognition of this significant marker of generational change and, as individuals now on the cusp of adulthood have no lived memory of that September morning, the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, in partnership with the American Library Association, will employ an exhibition and public programming to travel to 20 libraries around the country from January 2021 through December 2022. The project will lay out the events of September 11, 2001, its historical precursors, and its continuing legacy for contemporary society, while encouraging libraries to create programming that will explore connections between 9/11 and their local communities.
