Person wearing mask and wearing a button with a photo of their face
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

We are excited to announce that for the rest of 2020, there will be NO overdue fines! Plus, any existing fines will be put on hold until 2021. So, you don’t need to worry about them for now.

If you currently owe more than $10 in fines & fees and your access has been limited, you can once again borrow, renew or place holds on your library account, effective immediately.
