September 11, 2001

Ten Years Later
The anniversary of the attacks is tomorrow and calls for both remembrance and reflection. We offer links to and lists of a variety of online and print resources that may be helpful in forging a family discussion about 9/11.

Visit iCONN, a service of the Connecticut State Library. Explore links to the Connecticut Historical Society, the Library of Congress, and other digital news, photo, e-book, and oral history archives about 9/11.

The Sonic Memorial Project tells the story of 9/11 through sound. Listen to collected voice mails, home recordings, and audio clips that tell the first-person stories of WTC neighbors and neighborhoods, WTC workers, and 9/11 families.
