MOORHEAD — Five quilts memorializing those who have lost their lives to AIDS are now on display at Minnesota State University Moorhead's Livingston Lord Library.

Visitors can view the quilts on display on the library's first floor during normal operating hours. Each of the five quilts have a panel featuring individuals from the Fargo-Moorhead area who died from AIDS.

The quilts are smaller segments of the AIDS Memorial Quilt, which weighs about 54 tons and is made of more than 50,000 panels.

The university has two events planned in relation to the display. On Nov. 6, students and community members will create new panels for the quilt. The new panels will be on display on World AIDS Day, Dec. 1, along with a screening of the documentary "Nothing Without Us: The Women Who Will End AIDS."

Partnering with the university to put on these events are the Red River Rainbow Seniors, FM LGBTQ Alliance and Historical and Cultural Society of Clay County.
