Porter Express: School Delivery

Westlake Porter Public Library is happy to deliver and pick-up items to your school in the city of Westlake.

Deliveries and pick-up of materials are every Tuesday and Thursday that WPPL is open. Materials will be left in the designated location at your school. When you are ready to return items, simply put them in your schools’ designated location and they will be collected on the scheduled pick-up date. You are responsible for scheduling a pick-up if you are returning items earlier than their original due date, or you are returning items that have renewed. Items returned on their original due date do not need to be scheduled.

WPPL staff requires at least 24 hours to fill requests of materials.

Please see the FAQ below for more information about School Delivery Cards. If you are a teacher who works in a school in Westlake and would like a School Delivery Card, please contact the library at 440-871-2600 to get started!
