‘Star-Spangled’ event at OCC Library to commemorate 9/11

       As part of what the Pikes Peak Library District is calling “A Star-Spangled Celebration,” the Old Colorado City Branch Library will commemorate the 9/11 terrorist attacks on America three years ago with patriotic craft-making and a demonstration of American flag etiquette.
       The event, free and open to the public, will start at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 14 in the library at 2418 W. Pikes Peak Ave.
       Explaining the flag will be the Westside's Boy Scout Troop 3. The Scouts will talk about the flag and how to treat it properly. The craft session will be led by library personnel, teaching children how to make “Uncle Sam” hats, according to Old Colorado City Library Manager Julianne Rist.
       Another sort of commemoration will be at the East Library, which will be open 24 hours starting at 9:30 a.m. Sept. 11.
       “The thought behind it is that democracy never closes and libraries represent democracy,” Rist said.
