Charles Brace to rid New York City of homeless street children and provide them with a chance to find new homes, this nearly 80 year experiment in child migration is filled with horror stories and happy endings. Sheridan Fulmer Library will host “Riders on the Orphan Trains”, the official outreach program of the National Orphan Train Complex, at 11 a.m. on Saturday in the Inner Circle. There will be a one hour presentation including music and photos. The library is located at 335 W. Alger St. For more information, contact Christina Schmidt at 674-8585 ext. 29.
