This year marks the 10 year anniversary of the events that took place on September 11, 2001. In remembrance of this day that changed our nation and to highlight the topic of helping children to cope with traumatic events, there is a display in the Library of selected titles from The Marjorie Bakken Collection: Children’s Response to September 11. Some of these books include artworks and writings by children expressing their emotions regarding September 11 and others are written for children to help them understand and cope with the events and its aftermath. In 2001, then-president Marjorie Bakken requested that the Library make a special purchase of children’s books related to the September 11 attacks. These titles, which are integrated into the juvenile collection, can be found by searching the Library catalog.
