Lori Witham, who is dressed as a flapper, gets ready to read to the children at the Waterville Branch Library.
Children's librarian Lori Witham evokes the era of the Roaring '20s as she dresses as a flapper — a woman who wore knee-length dresses, considered revealing at the time — in a program for children at the Waterville Branch Library on Michigan Avenue.
A historical pamphlet from the opening of the Lucas County Library, Waterville Branch was on display during the 85th anniversary celebration.
Her talk was part of the library's 85th anniversary celebration that included hands-on children's activities, discussions about history, a cake, and a display of old-time items such at a pamphlet from the opening of the library on May 3, 1926.
