Wild & Wooly Prohibition Events

The Volstead Act, which made the manufacture and sale of alcoholic beverages illegal, turns 100 this January. To commemorate this anniversary, Meinders Library will be hosting several Prohibition-themed events.

On Monday January 14th, we’ll explore Minnesota’s own connection to Prohibition with living history presenter Arn Kind at Meinders Library.
