Library display focuses on ’20s

Library display focuses on '20s The Vermillion Public Library is featuring a cultural display focusing on the decade known as "The Roaring Twenties."

The display represents various aspects of the 1920s, including artwork, literature, costumes and household items.

The 1920s were a time of social progressivism, economic expansion and civil repression. Women had been granted the right to vote, Harry Cohn had just founded Columbia Pictures, Charles Lindbergh flew across the Atlantic, and television had its first demonstration.

Inspired by the A&E presentation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's timeless classic The Great Gatsby, the library display includes memorabilia and historial information from the time period.

The display may be viewed by the public throughout the next month.

The library staff sends a special thank you to Shirley Huber and Kim Allison for sharing their 1920s treasures with the library for the display.
