Comb Binding Machine Downstairs

The Special Services Department, on the lower level of the Dick Smith Library, has a comb binding machine you can use to make books.  It's very easy to use - our staff would be glad to show you how!  We even have some binding combs you can use, in four colors in a variety of sizes.

The binder is located in the Curriculum Workroom downstairs, which is always open any time the library is open.  Staff can help you between 8 AM and 5 PM, Monday through Friday.  The combs are located in boxes in the two cabinets just below the comb binding machine.  Please choose one appropriate to the size of your project.

Other equipment in this room includes a typewriter, die cuts (a list of what we have is posted on the bulletin board, and we have some colored paper you can use), and a laminator.  Laminating must be done by our staff and is only available Monday through Friday, 8 AM to 5 PM.  Laminating is also the only service that isn't free - it's a dollar a foot, but we can fit three 8.5 by 11 inch pieces of paper per foot of laminate.  We'll be happy to give you an estimate before doing your job.
