“There’s this fear of missing something,” he said, explaining that more than 20 books arrive at his apartment every day.

MIDDLEBURY — Carol Spooner audited her first class at Middlebury College in the late 1980s. She sat in on an eight-person seminar course in the Religion Department about the bible and the environment.

Spooner, who graduated from the college in 1950, called up Professor Robert Schine and got permission to take the class. Since then, Spooner, 90, has audited roughly one class per semester on subjects including music theory, Chinese film, the Middle East and environmental studies. After she married her husband, Reg, in 1999, they began to audit classes together.
