the button project

In this world where wearing a mask has become the norm, we are missing seeing smiles and faces. To help teachers, school staff, daycare and care home staff share their smiles with the people they teach and work with daily, we've launched The Button Project. Taking part is easy and it's free!*

1. Teachers, school staff, daycare and care home staff can email their photos to buttons@wpl.ca

2. If multiple photos are being sent, please include them together in a ZIP file or via a link to an open folder in a Google Drive

3. Photos should be cropped as a headshot (shoulders up!) and be saved as JPGs or PNGs

4. Please include "Photo Buttons" in your email subject line

5. In your email, please include the contact information for the person picking up the buttons and the WPL location at which they would like to pick-up

6. WPL staff will produce one (1) button for each photo sent (multiple photos from an organization can and should be sent in one email)

7. We will contact you when the button(s) is/are ready for pickup

If you have further questions about The Button Project, phone 519-886-1310 ext. 124 or email askus@wpl.ca

*Please note that due to demands, we can only accomodate requests from within the Region of Waterloo.
