In honor of the 314th birthday of Benjamin Franklin, the namesake of our town, the Franklin Public Library held its 3rd Annual Readathon, a marathon reading of the full text of the Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin. The book is considered a classic of American literature. 

Several members of the Dean College community, including Dean College President Dr. Paula Rooney and students, joined in on the fun.
