"You may think libraries are just for books, but in Kansas they’re seeing a renewed interest in an old topic, cake pans. Dozens of libraries have hundreds of specialty baking molds and more and more Kansans are checking them out.
“We have 75 circulating cake pans in our collection,” said Carla Heideman, Interim Director of the Andover Public Library. “Everything from Barney to Barbie.”
