September 11 Remembered

On Saturday, September 11, libraries across America will be hosting programming as part of the September Project. Participants will share and discuss their ideas about democracy, citizenship and patriotism.

I am proud to be a speaker in one of our local September Project programs. Programs like this one highlight the important position libraries have in American society. Libraries remain the intellectual hubs of our communities. They bring important ideas to our citizenry through programs and materials. They provide a safe haven for individuals to explore important issues, without preconceived notions or agendas imposed by the institution. Libraries are what is good, solid and right in the world, and they need our support and participation.

Attend a September Project program in your local library.
