Promo for From Behind the Mask
Waterloo Public Library is excited to be a part of a new community art initiative, From Behind the Mask.

From Behind the Mask organizers are creating a community quilt based on the form of a mask. They created the initiative "... to come together - while apart - and make something that will remain as a memorial, acknowledge inequality, and act as a starting point for healing."

UPDATE: With restrictions currently in place due to the Provincewide Shutdown, we are unable to hand out quilt kits at our WPL locations. However, kits can be requested by filling out an online form at Once our doors are open again we will resume having kits available for pick-up and drop-off at our locations.

All ages are encouraged to get involved, and taking part is easy! Simply pick up a quilt block kit locally including at any WPL location or make a block from home following simple instructions available on the From Behind the Mask website. When your block is complete, return it to any of the pickup locations
