“UW Libraries are honored to share this poster exhibit with the campus and the Laramie community,” said UW Libraries Assistant Dean Paula Martin. “Sept. The 11th is a solemn day in the memory of those who watched the events unfold and who lost family and friends in the attacks. Many of our students were born and raised in a post 9/11 world, and this is an opportunity for our community to share memories and lessons with a new generation. It reminds us all of how our citizens came together to support and rebuild during one of our darkest times. “
