Additional Services

There are free book jackets and periodicals available to all students.

Students can also leave items to be laminated. The charge is 30 cents per linear foot for laminating and the turn-around is usually between 24 and 36 hours.  Drop items to be laminated off with Courtney Fuson or in the Media Center.

The Education Department has purchased an Ellison Die Cut Machine, which is available for use at the library. Simply check in at the desk in the Media Center to use the machine. Be sure to bring your own paper and your Belmont ID.  A list of all of the dies available can be found below.  The Ellison Education website has lots of ideas for how to use the dies in the classroom.
