Event Description: The Dekalb Public Library is joining a 21st-century community-building initiative inspired by Benjamin Franklin’s “club for mutual improvement,” launched more than 200 years ago. Ben Franklin Circles are dedicated to exploring the 13 virtues identified by Franklin: Temperance, Silence, Order, Resolution, Frugality, Industry, Sincerity, Justice, Moderation, Cleanliness, Tranquility, Chastity and Humility. The group engages in conversations on what each of these virtues means today on a personal and societal level. This month we will be discussing temperance, of which Franklin’s definition is “Eat not to dullness and drink not to elevation.” This program is FREE and open to all ages. No registration is required. It is held in conjunction with Northern Illinois University’s P20 Center and hosted by Outreach and Engagement Specialist Tracy Rogers-Tryba. For additional information, please contact Samantha at samanthah@dkpl.org or at (815) 756-9568 ext. 1701.
