Title

Journey to the Other Side of the Tracks

Description

In my family you had to be 8 years old before you could cross railroad tracks on your own. In order to get to the Weston library, from my family’s home, I had to cross the railroad. The first Saturday, after I turned 8, I got up early, walked the 30 minutes to get to the library and got there before it was open! I still remember sitting on the steps (of the original old part of the branch) waiting for staff to arrive so I could use my card for the first time all by myself.
