Libraries Across Kansas Check Out Cake Pans

Libraries across Kansas, particularly in rural areas, have a long tradition of checking out cake pans.
Patrons of the Great Bend Public Library can check out a cake pan along with their books. The library has had a few cake pans in its collection for years, but the practice has picked up since employees began moving nearly 100 cake pans from a back room to the front of the library.
Great Bend is not alone. Libraries across Kansas, particularly in rural areas, have a long tradition of checking out cake pans.
Library officials say the practice picked up during the recent recession, as people look for ways to save money.
The Sabetha library has a collection of 168 cake pans, while the Coffey County Library in eastern Kansas has 389 cake pans among its six branches.
