A beam from one of the Twin Towers in New York was erected in front of the library as the initial phase of the project.
Organizers say it's been a challenge finding funding for the memorial.
Without A Anthony and Sons helping with the concrete foundation, organizers say the project wouldn't be able to move forward.
They're now planning a memorial service on September 11th at the memorial site.
