All Morning: “I Remember” Banner Project
Come add your own memories of September 11, 2001, to an artistic commemorative banner. The paper will be outside the library all day for you to stop by and add where you were, how old you were, how you felt, who you were worried about, or any memory that would help encourage others to reflect on that day.

Commemorate Bells will ring during the day to call attention to the times when the towers fell after being struck.The Labyrinth will open at 8:00pm as a place of reflection as we close a day of service and prayer.
