We hope you've been enjoying our 52 Stories About 52nd series! Our third story is about the Lucien E. Blackwell West Philadelphia Regional Library Children's Department Brooklyn comes to 52nd! Did you know that the One Book One Philadelphia book this year is Another Brooklyn by Jacqueline Woodson? The book grapples with themes of friendship, African American life, and mental health. The Lucien Blackwell Library will host discussions of the book every Thursday at 4pm and in March the library will actually host the author herself! It will be an incredible event and great for the entire family.

SEPTA Key

Tokens will be going away. On Monday, SEPTA will stop selling them at subway stations. Better get ready! http://planphilly.com/articles/2018/01/17/answers-for-all-your-septa-key-questions

    Answers for all your SEPTA Key questions
    On Monday, SEPTA will stop selling tokens at subway stations, taking a long-awaited leap forward in the neverending game of hopscotch that is the rollout of its new fare payment system, SEPTA Key. The end of station token sales represents a significant first step towards scrapping the fare coins entirely in 2019, a full five years after their original retirement date.

    The Retirement Crisis Facing African Americans
    There's a saying: When white America catches a cold, black America catches pneumonia. So, if there is an impending retirement crisis in America, what does that mean for African Americans? The answer to that question is discouraging. There is a huge gap in retirement preparation of African Americans compared to white Americans, generally speaking.
