The September Project

The September Project aims to use the existing physical and electronic networks in the public library system to create a space for national dialogue during 2004's Patriot Day, the anniversary of the terrorist attacks on September 11th.

As their website describes:

The September Project is a collection of citizens and organizations working to create a day of engagement, a day of conversation, a day of democracy. On September 11th libraries big and small will host events where citizens can participate collectively and think creatively about our country, our government, our community, and encourage and support the well-informed voice of the American citizenry.

Encourage your local library to participate - this is a wonderful opportunity to engage in nonpartisan conversation about our nation and to discuss the meaning of patriotism.

And please pass the word about this grassroots, nonpartisan organization. They are relying heavily on word-of-mouth/blog/listserv to reach libraries and communities and to stimulate open, informed dialogue.

Dave and I got a chance to talk to David S. about the project - it sounds really neat and a great way to get people talking about larger issues. We promised him we'd mention it on our blogs, but alas, you've scooped us!
