Library produces face-mask buckles

Update | Tuesday, April 28, 2020

The Columbus State Library has completed its first batch of 100 face-mask buckles using 3-D printers. The buckles help alleviate pain behind the ear from wearing masks for lengthy periods of time.

You can see an image of how they are worn at this link.

The Library will produce about 70 per week on its two 3-D printers. The project was made possible due to the ingenuity of Multimedia Support Center technicians Nathan Gjerstad and Hillary Jones. The first group of buckles goes to Mark Dudgeon's team in Facilities Operations. The Library will also begin offering these to health care professionals as production increases. They will also be available to employees when they begin to arrive back on campus. A picture of three face-mask buckles
