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 one of the following virtues: Temperance, Silence, Order, Resolution, Frugality, Industry, Sincerity, Justice, Moderation, Cleanliness, Tranquility, Chastity and Humility. This month they will be discussing sincerity, of which Franklin’s definition is “Use no hurtful deceit. Think innocently and justly; and, if you speak, speak accordingly.”
This program is FREE and intended for teenagers. It will be held this Wednesday, April 04, 2018, from 4:00 PM – 5:30 PM at the Haish Fireplace inside the DeKalb Public Library. Snacks will be provided. No registration is necessary. Teens are welcome to participate in the all ages Circles as well. Coordinated by Tracy Rogers-Tryba.
