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

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. Cake pans check out for 2 weeks. You are limited to 2 cake pans at a time per library card.
