Philosophers in the Midst of History
The projects of philosophers do not occur in a historical and cultural vacuum, and understanding the situations they were living in illuminates their philosophical projects and works. This lecture series focuses on examining the historical contexts in which thinkers like Plutarch, Bonaventure, G.W.F. Hegel, and Maurice Blondel were writing in relation to their main ideas.
The lecture series is presented by Greg Sadler and Andi Sciacca of ReasonIO and is recommended for adults and high school students. Each lecture will last about 60 minutes, with time for questions and answers following the lecture.

Spice of the Month Kits
Do you love to cook? Do you like to try new flavors and recipes? Then we have got just the kit for you! The Frank L. Weyenberg Library is now handing out Spice of the Month kits on the first day of the month. Each month a new spice and three recipes will be featured. Supplies will be limited to the first 20 participants, but copies of the recipes are available below.
- November 1 = Fennel
- December = Juniper Berries
- January = Garam Masala
- Oh no! We've found a mistake on one of the recipes for January's Garam Masala Spice kits! The gingerbread cookies do NOT need heavy cream, which is the first ingredient accidently listed. If you already purchased heavy cream, the Potato Gratin recipe uses it. We know it is no contest between a dessert or potatoes, so we sincerely apologize for the mistake! The recipe has been updated on the above link.
- February = Achiote
- March = Caraway
- April = Nigella Seeds
- Is your device or laptop doing something strange? Are you having trouble with a program or app? Drop by our Wednesday 1-0-1 for up to 15 minutes of one-on-one help from a librarian. We can troubleshoot issues, explain features, and more. Timeslots are first come, first serve.
