SLJ/LJ Resources for September 11

HeroesMarvel1 220x300 SLJ/LJ Resources for September 11 September 11 marks a difficult anniversary. To help children’s and young adult librarians navigate the challenging teachable moments that the day might raise and to guide those librarians working in universities and public libraries to address the potential research needs of patrons, the editors of School Library Journal and Library Journal have compiled a compendium of resources, just some of which are listed below.

From the SLJ and LJ archives, the resource page includes recent feature articles, recommended book lists, and recommended digital resources on the history of September 11 for all ages (including books on helping young children explore hard topics), plus resources that explore the political landscape since that day for adults.

Here are just some examples of what our resource page offers:
