We Are So Much Larger Than Our Walls questions@heyworthlibrary.com

Weekly Newsletter ~ January 9, 2012

The Heyworth Library would like to thank the family and friends of Bessie Grant for giving memorial donations to celebrate her life.  Bessie was a regular reader and enjoyed our large print collection.  Large print books will be purchased in her memory.

Also given to the library this past month:  A Dept. 56 Dickens’ Village scene, featuring many beloved buildings from The Christmas Carol for us to display each holiday season from Dee and Ron Frazier and gift books:  Scriptures and Mediations: Your Best Life Now by Joel Osteen from the Heyworth GFWC and Amazing Motorcycles by Tori Kosara in memory of Mike Burleson.

Don’t forget to check out our cake pan collection.  We now have 76 pans available for FREE 7-day checkout due in a large part from the gift donation from the family of Leta Shankel.  We are building a page on our website so you can view our pans online and download directions to decorate the cakes from the Wilton site if you choose to follow their directions.  Just click on CAKE PANS.

So your family doesn’t like cake, there are other alternative uses for cake pans. Use them to mold cinnamon rolls, bake a uniquely shaped pie, (cherry dinosaur pie anyone?), or mold your favorite marshmallow treats recipe in a fun shape.  We would love to have pictures of the yummy treats you make with these pans!

The library greatly appreciates the gifts and memorials donated to the Heyworth Public Library.  It is through these gifts and memorials that we can offer services and materials that go beyond the ordinary.  For more information on gifts, memorials or bequests contact the director Beth Porter at 473-2313.
