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

Library News ~ October 21, 2015

Don’t forget to check out our cake pan collection. We now have 119 pans available for FREE 7-day checkout, all donated, due in a large part from a gift donation from the family of Leta Shankel. You can view all our cake pans from our website heyworthlibrary.com. Go to the BOOKS, MOVIES, and MORE tab and select BORROW, then click on CAKE PANS. Pictures of each pan are listed. Last week we added a pan to make an edible cake dress for a fashion doll.  It was checked out the day it was set out for display.

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?), bake boxed brownies in a fun shape, create decorative punch floats, or mold your favorite marshmallow treats recipe in a fun shape. With the upcoming holiday season approaching the possibilities are endless.

Donations were given in Larry Mowery’s memory from Cathy and Dennis Wentworth, and Fred and Shirley Slayback. Fred and Shirley Slayback also presented gifts to the library in memory of Marilyn Yvonne Cotner and Iona Fern Murphy.

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.
