Spring Floral Soap Making
6:30pm - 7:45pm
Spring Flowers Soap Making
Celebrate the first full day of spring with spring soaps. You will create a soap using white and clear glycerin based soap and a variety of templates to create the shapes. There is no lye exposure, since the process does not involve traditional soap making techniques. We will add, to the clear soap base, color, essential oil (optional), cosmetic grade glitter and a variety of shapes to create the floral design. At the end of the workshop each participant will take home their handmade soap, it can be removed from the mold the following day and used right away. Please register at the circulation desk or by calling 583-3408, space is limited. Free!

Children will enjoy stories, games, songs, and crafts about the things we see and do in springtime. The session runs 6 weeks.
Each storytime includes about 30 minutes of stories, finger-plays, songs and games related to that week’s theme, followed by a craft project and a snack; the total storytime runs approximately 60 minutes.
This program is crafted specifically for the attention span and interest level of 3-5 year olds. If your child is younger than 3 or may not be up for sitting and listening to 4-5 stories with 1-2 song or game breaks in between you may want to consider our storytime for 2-3 year olds, which runs on Wednedays at 10am, or our Kangaroo Time program, which runs on Thursdays at 10am.
