Weekly Newsletter ~ October 30, 2013

Fall’s chilly air has arrived and it’s a perfect time to catch up on reading.  Many titles are arriving weekly.  Stop by or browse online through our website heyworthlibrary.com to see our latest offerings.  Also a full line up of activities and programs are being planned this winter and are posted under the programs tab.  There is something for everyone at your Heyworth Public Library.  All of our programs and activities are free of charge.  Sign-ups are sometimes requested due to space limitations or supply costs.

Holiday Cake Pans!   The Heyworth Public Library has over 82 cake pans for a 7 day loan period.  We are excited to offer this collection.  Do you have a cake pan that you would like to donate to grow this collection?  Our pans are on display in the library and can be viewed on our website as well.   So you don’t want to bake a cake?  Use our pans to mold rice crispy treats, bake a designer pan of box mix brownies, or use the pans to mold fruit punch to float in your party punch bowl.  Stop in and let your imagination run wild…right in time for holidays.
