Twice each year the Friends of the Patterson Memorial Library hold a fundraising event to raise funds for our library's needs - this year's sale is on November 22 from 8-Noon in the community center.
The funds raised are used throughout the year for many programs: the summer reading program, card creators equipment, Stamping equipment, seeds for the seed library and for the After School Program, which, although we run it a reduced number of days, is still expensive to operate and maintain (the children are so hungry!).
So far this year we started a seed library, started circulating bake ware and now we have rubber stamps and greeting card blanks - so you can check those out and create a handmade card for the holidays!
Well, we got the first 9 cake pans all ready to go! They are all character cake pans, but we have some loaf pans, springform pans, Jell-o molds, etc coming soon!
Why? When I was interviewing in Iowa, one of the things they told me about was their baking pan library. What a great idea! Suppose you have a young boy who loves Spiderman - THIS year - now you don't have to run out and by a pan, you come to the library and check one out! Barbie? No problem. Lighning McQueen. Piece of cake!
