It's officially Noshember so put down your razors.

It's that time of year again where we put down our razors for a month and let the hair grow! Welcome to Noshember! That's right; it's a no-shave November. 

Take a look around, and while this is not an official holiday, you will notice many men sprouting facial hair this month and women not shaving their legs as they partake in Noshember. The rules are simple:

1. Stow the razors for a month.

2. Let the hair grow!

3. Take a picture at the end of the month to celebrate your completion of Noshember.

IT'S WORTH IT

Do you remember when you were younger, you would hear the older people say and even parents tell you to always say “Yes, Ma’am, “No Ma’am”  “Yes Sir and No Sir”. This was their way of saying” be kind”.
 Northwest Branch is having an act of kindness day on October 22, 2012. All we ask is for the patrons to say thank you to the staff and the staff say’s thank you in return. Each individual may be surprised how this little act can spark a smile on someone’s face or make their day just a little brighter; gratitude goes a big way.
