 The Mary Cotton Public Library received a bag of donation yarn. One of Our Fiber Art Ladies “Roma McCorkle” took some yarn and finished this Beautiful Afghan.

  (You need to come in and look at this piece of Art.)

Roma and The Fiber Art Club donate this to The Mary Cotton Public Library to sell for Books and supplies. The Library is selling this work $125.00

(all the money made from this will be used for books on the Fiber Arts and supplies for the club to make the purple hats for the new born babies of Sabetha.)  Thank you for your support.

Cake pan collections in libraries

August 23, 2012Posted in: Around NEKLS, Articles


The Hutchinson News printed a story yesterday about library cake pan collections in Kansas and included comments from two NEKLS librarians, Kim Priest, director of  Mary Cotton Public Library in Sabetha, and Jeanette Stromgren, director of Osage City Public Library. Both of their libraries circulate cake pan collections. Williamsburg Community Library also circulates a collection of cake pans.

Check out all the different cake pans that are available through these three libraries.

Read Check out a cake pan? to learn more. The story includes a reader poll, a short story about other collections available at a library, and a map of libraries with cake pan collections.

Does your library circulate a unique collection or are you thinking of starting one? Let us know in the comments!
