Please excuse any duplication across lists.


Welcome to the 5th annual September Project! The September Project is a
grassroots effort to encourage events about freedom and democracy in all
libraries in all countries during the month of September. September Project
events are free and organized locally.


In 2004, we began the September Project to break the silence following
September 11, and to invite all people into libraries to consider topics of
patriotism, democracy, and citizenship. Initially, events focused on
September 11 and largely took place on September 11. As the project evolved,
events spread throughout the month of September and focused on issues of
freedom and democracy.


To date, public, academic, school, and government libraries around the world
have organized September Project book displays, community book readings,
children's art projects, film screenings, theatrical performances, civic
deliberations, voter registrations, murals, panel discussions, and so much
more. What will this year bring? How can you participate? Organize an event
at your library, and tell us about it! We'll post all events on this site as
they develop around the world.
