Elfriede Wuckert walked up the steps of the Albina Library (now Titlewave) in the late 1920's holding her mother's hand.  Her family emigrated in 1925 from Germany and quickly became library "regulars.”  Listen to her stories of the citizenship classes her mother attended along with the memories of what it was like to be new in town and find friends in the books she carried home by the “armfuls.”  Hear what is different, but also what remains stable and familiar in the library for people new to the country.
