Cake Pans

Bake a special cake without purchasing the pan – borrow a cake pan from the library. Our collection of 50+ novelty, character, and special-sized cake pans check out with your library card for 2 weeks from Main Library, or place a hold to have it sent to one of our 17 branches, or the bookmobile.

Borrow, bake, decorate, then take a picture and share on Facebook or Instagram with #akroncakes. Enjoy your delicious cake, scrub up the cake pan, and return it inside any of our Akron-Summit County Public Library locations.

Easy as pie, uh, cake!

Pans Available for Checkout

Please wash the cake pan according to handling instructions before returning it to the library. A damaged item fee of $2 will be charged for cake pans returned dirty. Return your cake pan to the circulation desk of your local library. Please do not put the cake pan in the book drop. Cake pans check out for 3 weeks. You are limited to 1 cake pan at a time per library card.

Handling Instructions

Before and after usage, wash the cake pan in warm, soapy water and dry it thoroughly. Most of our cake pans are dishwasher safe, but not all. Additional instructions coming?
