CakePanCollectionBaking a cake for a special occasion is now easy as pie, thanks to the new collection of cake pans available at the Akron-Summit County Public Library. Over 50 pans, from children’s favorites to multi-tiered layer cakes, check out for two weeks with your library card.

Cake pans can be put on reserve and sent to your local branch library for pick-up. Borrowers are limited to two pans per check-out and pans must be washed before and after use.

Share photographs of your cake baking successes, or failures, on social media with the hashtag #akroncakes and/or by emailing them to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We’ll share them for you!
