Movember: Whitman County Library is Changing the Face of Men's Health

What is Movember?

The Movember Foundation is a global charity that advocates for men, raising funds and awareness for men's health issues, such as prostate cancer and testicular cancer. The annual event involves the growing of mustaches during the month of November to "change the face of men's health."

How is Whitman County Library Participating?

There are "mustached" books on display by the front desk and hidden around the library for individuals to check out. Patrons are also invited to encouraged to take a selfie or group photo with the hashtag #WCLMovember and post it on social media.

Check Out A "Mustached" Book from our display or library shelves and be entered to WIN!!!

What Can You Do to Help?

You can help raise awareness by getting people interested and talking about Movember. The Colfax Library has set up a mustache photo booth where patrons can take pictures and are encouraged to post them with hashtag #WCLMovember. If you are camera shy, you can also check out a "mustached" book  from our display or find one hidden throughout the library. The goal is for the community to see the photos or the books you have checked out and ask, "What are all the mustaches about?" and you can share the Movemeber message!
