Great Character Cake Pans Available

The Overbrook library has a big selection of specialty bakeware to lend out (175 items), but did you know 28 of those are Character cake pans, including several Sesame Street Characters, Esmeralda, Dora, Superhero & He-Man, Taz, Winnie the Pooh, G.I. Joe, Mickey Mouse, Scooby Doo, Garfield and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle? Looking for something specific? You can browse our binder of items on the bakeware display, or browse from the website, or come by and ask. If we don’t have it, we might be able to get it from another library who has cake pans to loan out.

Kansas Notable Books 2016

Make sure you take a look at the new 2016 Kansas Notable Books display by the service desk the next time you are in the library! These books are either about Kansas or written by Kansans and are selected by the State Library of Kansas.

This year the book topics range from bank heists, to poetry, to Kansas hiking trails, so should be something for everyone!

Retro Bakeware Has Arrived In Overbrook

We have had a couple of generous donors recently who have given the Overbrook Library some retro character cake pans to add to our collection.  The photo in this post shows some of the new items that have been added. I hear many of these are coming back in popularity. So come to the library and check out a few – just for fun times with the youngsters before school starts – or for a special party. I hear there are even several bakers in the area who have made cakes for parties using our bakeware.  Have fun!RetroBakewareCollage072016
