Cake Pans

We are one of the few libraries in the county to have a collection of novelty cake pans! These cake pans are molded into the shape of different characters and images for an exciting and delicious treat!

Our cake pans are stored in the Children's Department, but anyone is welcome to check out a cake pan at any time!

Cake pans circulate for a minimum of three weeks and must be returned to Penn Hills Library.

Please wash your cake pans before returning them to the library.
