The Laredo Public Library System is pleased to announce its participation on September 11, 2001: The Day That Changed the World, an educational exhibit that presents the history of September 11, its origins and its continuing implications through personal stories of those who witnessed and survived the attacks.

Presented on 14 posters, this exhibition 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 reflection on the aftermath of September 11.

This poster exhibit is free and open to the public at Joe A. Guerra, Laredo Public Library located at 1120 E. Calton Rd. From Saturday September 11, 2021.

This 9/11 Memorial and Museum exhibit reflects the foundational pillars of remembrance, education and inspiration as we prepare to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks.

“In this 20th anniversary year, we have the privilege to share these lessons with a new generation, to teach them about the current repercussions of the 9/11 attacks and to inspire them with the idea that even in the darkest of times , we can come together, support each other and find the strength to renew and rebuild, ”said Alice M. Greenwald, President and CEO of the 9/11 Memorial and Museum.

The poster exhibit was developed by the 9/11 Memorial & Museum and was made possible in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities: Democracy Demands Wisdom.
