Library Patrons Across Kansas Borrow Cake Pans

 bundt cakeGREAT BEND, Kan. (AP) — 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. The Hutchinson News reports that 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.
