Community Closet and Tech Trading Post: Bakeware

The Community Closet and Tech Trading Post are two collections of unique and unexpected items that you may borrow the library providing access to a greater variety of shared resources.


Let your creativity shine with the Library's extensive collection of Bakeware. Whether you're having a special occasion or just because the collection has bakeware objects that will make your next tasty treat extra special. The collection includes cake pans, cookie cutters, fondant molds, and candy molds.

Coffee Urn

Pair your delicious Bakeware creation with a nice hot cup of coffee. A 60-cup coffee urn is available to checkout for your next party. 

Featured Bakeware creation

This 9-layer ice cream cake was made by a Valley Cottage resident using the Easy Layers cake pan. Looks like a great way to cool off on a hot summer day. Yum!
