Laminating

Try our Pouch Laminator for business cards, bookmarks, signs, flyers and more! Visit the Circulation desk to have your item laminated.

Pouch size Cost

8 ½ X 11 inches (letter size) $0.50
11 X 17 inches (ledger size) $1.00

Heat sensitive items—such as concert and movie tickets printed with thermal paper—are not suitable for lamination. Because laminating is permanent, collectible or valuable items are not recommended for lamination. Also, most official documents—such as Social Security cards—should not be laminated.

Exam iconThe Westlake Porter Public Library offers test proctoring free of charge during the hours the library is open. Computers are available for online-based tests and individual study rooms are available for paper tests.
