Ben Franklin Circle: Resolution
Wednesday, January 17, 2018
The DeKalb Public Library has joined 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 resolution, of which Franklin’s definition is “Resolve to perform what you ought; perform without fail what you resolve.”
This program is FREE and open to all ages. We will not be hosting a Teen Circle this month, so join us for this all-ages Circle. Food and drink will be served! No registration is required. Coordinated by Tracy Rogers-Tryba.
