This time of year, I always read one book about the events of September 11, 2001, in honor of those who died that day. I know other people who do this, too. Our library has many books on this subject; we have several DVDs, both historical documentaries and at least one major feature film. A number of these items are on display this week. Here are just a few of the titles we have about the terrorist attacks of 9/11:

Books about 9/11 in general:

Fall and Rise: The Story of 9/11 by Michael Zuckoff

September 11th

The week offers another remembrance, as Major League Baseball and the Pittsburgh Pirates observe Roberto Clemente Day on September 9. The baseball icon, who died in a plane crash while attempting to deliver humanitarian aid to earthquake victims, has a special place in the hearts of many baseball fans, and especially among folks in the Western Pennsylvania area. We’re joining the commemoration with a display in our front display case – and Yours Truly, the Library Lady, wearing my son’s Roberto Clemente t-shirt on the 9th. It was purchased in Cooperstown at the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Yes, we have books about Roberto Clemente (and other baseball greats) in our library collection. Come check them out!

I hope to see you soon!

The Library Lady
