Stony Brook University Libraries honored to participate in 9/11 Memorial & Museum commemorative poster exhibition

Stony Brook University Libraries is honored, having been selected as a recipient institution for the limited, official hardcopy poster collection of the 9/11 Memorial & Museum 20th Anniversary Commemoration. This 14 poster exhibition, September 11, 2001: The Day That Changed the World, tells the story of the terrorist attacks in archival photos and first person accounts. 

On Friday, September 10 we will be streaming the 9/11 Memorial & Museum Anniversary in the Schools webinar on a loop. Hear first hand accounts from family members and first responders. In the Central Reading Room Lab B, from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m., 9/11 Memorial Education staff will be available via live chat to answer student questions in real-time. Registration for remote viewing is available here.

Please visit the Central Reading Room of the Melville Library during the months of September and October, where we are displaying these images from the museum’s permanent collection and read stories of survival and hope.

This display will also be a stop along the Stony Brook University Art Crawl for Homecoming Weekend, October 23, 2021. Please visit the Art Crawl webpage for more information.

Whether you choose to volunteer, serve in the military, or care for the elderly, you can create the world in which we want to live. Many of our Seawolves were not yet born when these attacks occurred, “…and history is unfolding in our own time. The ways we choose to respond—both large and small—can demonstrate the best of human nature after even the worst of days.”
