The September Project @ NLB

september 11th tribute
911 Tribute taken by lilredhorse33. I believe this was taken last night in Chicago.

My RamblingLibrarian friend hopes for young Singaporeans to participate in an online event called “The September Project”. It’s organized by the National Library Board (NLB) as well as Youth.sg as part of the international movement where libraries around the world host civic events about freedom, democracy, and citizenship in response to the tragic anniversary of 9/11. Since 2004, more than 1,100 libraries in 34 countries have hosted free and public September Project events.

How to Participate:

For the Singapore’s version, the NLB wants you think write about literacy or peace or how literacy can bring about peace. If you’re not good with words, use any medium you are comfortable with to spread the message. Selected entries will be shared digitally with an international audience. The Top 3 entries will stand to win attractive NLB limited edition collectibles.

Send your entries to showteens@nlb.gov.sg together with your name, ic, telephone number and email address in either jpeg, mpeg3, mov, avi, ppt or doc format. (maximum file size: 1MB) by 22 Sept 06. (See the Official poster)

There’s presently a lot of blogs paying their tributes to the 5th anniverary of 9/11 where around 3,000 people lost their lives. If you think of 9/11, it was when people started accepting blogs as medium for the masses to share their thoughts. In other words, 9/11 could very well be the cultural birth of blogs.

  1. I found a WIRED article that was totally about that also… my blog will bring it down for us in a few minutes as a “today’s links” post. Watch for it.
