For the safety of our patrons and with a continued effort to “flatten the curve," all Athens Regional Library System branches in Athens-Clarke, Franklin, Madison, Oconee and Oglethorpe counties will remain closed until such time that it is deemed safe to reopen to the public. Library staff remain on the job  serving our communities virtually.  Please feel free to contact us at http://athenslibrary.org/homepage/regional-information/contact-us if you have any questions regarding library service during this time. We will update the community as more information becomes available.

Fathers and Sons by Ivan Sergeevich Turgenev, 1818 - 1883: Bazarov, a nihilist, advocates a materialistic view of life and disappoints his adoring parents. - From Novelist an online database accessed June 6, 2013 through GALILEO

"Against the background of the liberation of Russia's serfs during the 1860s, a generational conflict flares between older aristocrats and radical youths. Quarrels, romance, and misunderstandings ensue when an outspoken young nihilist accompanies a school friend home for an extended visit. One of the truly great 19th-century Russian novels." -From GoodReads, accessed online June 6, 2013
