Christina Ryook remembered at Porter Library on 9/11

Mira Han Turcinov, whose mom, Michelle Han, was Christina Ryook's best friend, enjoys a book in Christina's Corner shortly after the ceremony.

On Sept. 11, Westlake Porter Public Library hosted a ceremony to remember Christina Ryook, the Westlaker who was one of the victims of the 9/11 terror attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. The ceremony, attended by Christina’s family and friends, as well as Mayor Dennis Clough, was held in Christina’s Corner.

Christina’s Corner is an area of the Youth Services Department named for Ryook, who loved children and the library. The ceremony was followed by a reception which featured rubbings of Christina’s name made at the 9/11 Memorial and Museum in New York City by Youth Services Manager Carolyn Fain.
