Towers Stand Tall at Parsippany Library
Friends of the Library 9/11 event lets Parsippany residents and groups recreate the World Trade Center buildings.
A moving display honoring the fallen World Trade Center towers was on view at the main branch of the Parsippany Public Library on Halsey Road Sunday afternoon. The event, sponsored by the Friends of the Library, called on residents to create their artistic interpretation of twin towers, and if crowd reaction is a suitable gauge, those who made submissions did not disappoint. Judge for yourself via this photo gallery. And look around town: Organizers say the tower creations will be on display throughout the township this week.
One of the artists was 15-year-old Claire Elko, a junior at Parsippany Hills High School. She said she spent two weeks working on her creation, which used the American flag as a backdrop.
"It's supposed to remind us to remember the tragedy and to show that the flag says we are all together as one," Claire explained. "We should never forget that."
