The Victorian Undertaker, presented by Steve Person
Thursday, January 10, 2019, 6:30 pm
Steve Person is a retired funeral director and will discuss many of the Victorian funeral and mourning customs. It was during the Victorian Era that the ritual of death became increasingly sophisticated and this period saw the development of the modern cemetery, morticians, and public funerals, complete with floral arrangements and a hearse for transportation of the deceased. The "undertaker" of the Victorian Era was the forerunner of today's funeral director. Many of the traditions that are observed in our funeral process today arose from the superstitions of the 1800s. Mortuary and embalming equipment from this era are also part of the display that will be shared during this presentation.

Cudahy Family Library announces a partnership with Driving-Tests.org, a company dedicated to driver safety and education, to offer free Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) practice tests to library patrons. The new service includes free tests specifically based on the state’s DMV materials. It is the only site of its kind to include accessibility tools that let users hear selections read aloud, make them into MP3s, translate pages into other languages, magnify text, and mask portions of the screen for greater visibility on the practice tests.
