Announcement from The January 8th Memorial Foundation:

The January 8th Memorial Foundation is honored to present “January 8th Memorial Foundation: Together We Thrive,” which will be presented at three different branches of the Pima County Public Library from January 3rd-31, 2014. This is the first time any of these touching community-created materials will be publically seen since February 2011 and we want to remember together.

The exhibits will be installed at three libraries: Nanini, Eckstrom-Columbus and Joel D. Valdez Main. Each exhibit will have a special opening event:

■ Reception on Monday, January 6th at Joel Valdez Main Library at noon

■ Flag-raising and reception on Wednesday, January 8th at Nanini at 10:00 a.m.

■ Reception on Thursday, January 9th at Eckstrom-Columbus at 5:30 p.m.

These events are free and open to the public. The January 8th Memorial Foundation invites you to join us in this special remembrance of a tragedy which touched our community so deeply, as well as a celebration of the spirit of hope and caring so beautifully expressed in these tribute memorial items. Truly, together we thrive.
