Waterloo library’s button project helps show faces behind masks

‘Hopefully it will make some people’s days just a little bit brighter,’ says Anjana Kipfer


A new project from the Waterloo Public Library (Ontario, Canada) is helping people see the faces of educators and child care workers who have to wear masks to curb the spread of COVID-19 while at work.

Teachers, caregivers, long-term care home staff and child care workers can send in a photo of themselves and the library will put it on a button for free, which the person can wear at work.
