Queens Library Remembers 9/11

Everyone has been affected directly or indirectly by the tragic events of September 11, 2001, and many have thoughts and experiences that they would like to share, perhaps speaking openly for the first time.

On Wednesday, September 11, 2002, Queens Library, in partnership with Queens Public Access Television (QPTV) will set up videotaping equipment at the Far Rockaway Branch, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., and several other library branches where Queens residents will have a brief opportunity to vocalize their thoughts and impressions and their hopes for the future, so that generations to come will have a better understanding of a life-changing historic event.

These tapes will become part of the permanent archives of Queens Library’s Long Island Division, and may be broadcast on QPTV.

All ages are welcome at the Far Rockaway branch, located at 1637 Central Avenue. However, children under 18 years of age must bring written permission from a parent or guardian to be videotaped. Queens Library reserves the right to edit final video or written documents.

In addition, all Queens Library locations will have "Queens Remembers" forms to fill out on September 11. The will be gathered and bound into a Memory Book, and archived at the Queens Library’s Long Island Division.
