Tonyell McDay was employed at Marsh Technologies in World Trade Center Tower 1 on Sept. 11, 2001. And then, suddenly, she was not. This is part of a poster that her "extremely worried" loved ones made to try and find her. A copy of that poster is on display at Kimball Public Library.

Kimball Public Library has an educational exhibition of the events and circumstances of Sept. 11, 2001. The poster exhibits from the 9/11 Memorial and Museum, titled "September 11, 2001: The Day that Changed the World," is comprised of 14 posters providing a historical view as well as a personal story of those who witnessed and the survived the attacks.

Posters provide facts about the planes that flew into the twin towers, the Pentagon, and United Flight 93, the collapse of the twin towers, the recovery and cleanup, as well as a brief explanation of the resulting 20 years war on terror.

Along with initial facts are photos of personal items and individual stories.

The poster exhibit displayed at the library brings back a flood of memories. Remember that anyone in their early 20s or younger has no recollection of the emotions of those days, but the posters may help create an interest in the events.

The library has dozens of books highlighting the events of 911.
