North Liberty Iowa Library

Just had to make a comment on the North Liberty Iowa Library. That was the library that we visited today (6/5/08). It is attached to the community center that has a cool pool and a water slide among other things, but what caught my attention and I think other libraries should utilize is - Character Cake Pans. Yes, they had several rows of cake pans standing on the top of the bookcases. I asked the librarian and she said that they were on loan just as the books were only you took them out for only a week. I know I have a few Wilton cake pans – Big Bird, a cross, mini car, train, bear and doll – there might be others, but I can’t remember , but they are too costly to use and then store. What a great idea to just borrow them and return them. The pans were sort of catorigized too, they had several Halloween ones together and Christmas, Easter and a lot of just childrens characters. What a great idea. We need to pass this on and let the idea spread.

That is a great idea. I bought an Elmo cake pan for our little ones 2nd birthday and I haven't used it since. I think it ran me about $25.00. Sure would of liked checking one out of the library for a week.
