Congratulations, Class of 2018!

“The central task of education is to implant a will and a facility for learning; it should produce not learned but learning people. The truly human society is a learning society, where grandparents, parents, and children are students together.” -Eric Hoffer

Book Discussion: A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens

“If I could work my will,” said Scrooge indignantly, “Every idiot who goes about with ‘Merry Christmas’ on his lips, should be boiled with his own pudding, and buried with a stake of holly through his heart.”

"Mankind was my business. The common welfare was my business; charity, mercy, forbearance, and benevolence were all my business. The dealings of my trade were but a drop of water in the comprehensive ocean of my business!" “Mankind was my business. The common welfare was my business; charity, mercy, forbearance, and benevolence were all my business. The dealings of my trade were but a drop of water in the comprehensive ocean of my business!”

Ebenezer Scrooge is miser who hates Christmas and all it stands for, but a ghostly visitor foretells three apparitions who will bring about a change of mind in one night. A Christmas Carol has gripped the public imagination since it was first published in 1843, and it is now as much a part of Christmas as mistletoe or plum pudding.

On Friday, December 8 at 12:00, the Library will host a discussion of this beloved classic. Dr. Pete Fraser, professor of film and literature, will lead our conversation. The Library has several copies of the book in print and e-book formats.

The discussion will take place in the Library Conference Room. Distance students and faculty are encouraged to join us live via Google Hangouts, Google’s easy-to-use videoconferencing software. Click here to request a link to the discussion.
