Village Library Cleans Up With Soapmaking Class

It is thought that the concept of washing the body with soap may date back to prehistoric times.  Of course, the soap then would have been essentially animal fat mixed with ashes, a concoction only a modern caveman would consider using today.

Make plans to attend “Soapmaking with Kelly Thompson” at the Village Library, 10307 N. Pennsylvania, on Monday, August 18, 2008, from 5:00 to 6:00pm to learn the craft of making soap at home. 

“Kelly Thompson is a great guide through the slippery ins and outs of soap making,” said Village librarian Julianna Link.  “She’ll take session attendees through the process and show everyone many different kinds of soaps they can make for gifts or for their own personal use.”

            “Soapmaking with Kelly Thompson” is for adults and is free of charge.  Call The Village Library at 755-0710 for more information.
