Underwear at the Library- Yes, It's True!

Diane Johnson, the Lake Tahoe Historical Society President, and I transformed the Library's lobby display case into an exhibit promoting the upcoming A Brief History of Underwear talk.

Tuesday, August 30, 6 PM Join the Friends of the Library for "A Brief History of Underwear" presented by Jan Loverin, Curator of Clothing and Textiles at Nevada State Museum's Marjorie Russell Clothing and Textile Research Center. This is an incredibly interesting and engaging lecture about our most intimate attire... underwear!  It looks at the history of various forms and styles of undergarments worn by our ancestors.  Starting with the Egyptians and going through the millennia, this power point program reveals fascinating facts about corsetry, drawers (panties and shorts), petticoats, bustles, farthingales, and other undergarments men and women have worn throughout western civilization.  We all wear undies- come find out the WEAR and WHY of underwear.

These "unmentionables" are from the museum's collection and have not been seen by the public before. I am very proud of the display. If you're around the library, you should try to see it. It's there until the morning of August 31st.

Wear is it?
I liked your play on words so I joined in.
It does seem a little out place. Or is it fitting?
