Recently at the Cedar Rapids branch of the Kirkwood Community College library we’ve had a lot of books come in that had something to do with Prohibition. This is the kind of prohibition and bootlegging that refers to illegal alcohol during the 1920s. It does not cover bootleg DVDs from China, etc.

These titles are housed in Cedar Rapids, but you can request them to be delivered to any of the other centers at any time.
