Bowman Library in Stephens City has on display the Prohibition-era exhibit “Teetotalers & Moonshiners: Prohibition in Virginia, Distilled” through Jan. 17.
The exhibit includes a series of informational banners and an interactive tablet display to tell the story of the lasting effects of prohibition, including the economic and social costs and the rise of illegal alcohol production and sale as an underground culture and economy. The exhibit is on loan from the Library of Virginia.
To compliment the exhibition, Handley Library has curated a display of photographs, artifacts and other materials surrounding local events and history during prohibition. Information: www.handleyregional.org/teetolalers.
