The Boardman library taught participants how to make soap July 15 as part of the Show What You Know series for adults and teens.
“It’s a chance to engage the community in different crafts and educational actvities,” said Karen Saunders, childrens librarian.
Gerlina Thomas has attended quite a few of the programs.
“I like doing crafts, it’s free and its my library,” said Thomas.
Saunders taught attendees how to make soap using a microwave, glycerin cubes, rubber molds and soap dyes. While the soap was forming, she read “Soap! Soap! Don’t Forget the Soap!,” an appalachian foltale retold by Tomy Birdseye.
Saunders said the library is looking for new topics and teachers.
“The library is always look for volunteers to teach new classes,” said Saunders.
The next Show What You Know program will explore machine kitting on Aug. 9 at 7 p.m. For more information, visit www.libraryvisit.org, or call 330-744-8636.
