The September Project (http://www.theseptemberproject.org) is a grassroots effort to encourage civic and campus events on freedom, democracy, and citizenship in libraries on or around September 11.
Currently, over 600 libraries in 31 countries are organizing September Project events for their communities. A map of all participants can be seen here:
Australia, Bangladesh, Canada, Cuba, Cyprus, El Salvador, Ethiopia, France, Greece, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Nepal, New Zealand, Nicaragua, People’s Republic of China (Hong Kong), Peru, Serbia and Montenegro, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sri Lanka, Switzerland, Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, the United Kingdom, the US, and Venezuela.
The events are simply inspired. For a listing of event examples, designed and hosted by public, academic, school, governmental, and special libraries, please visit our Events page: http://www.theseptemberproject.org/events.htm
