Let The John Rylands Library inspire your Mo!


Take a selfie with one of our statues!

#jrlphotoaday continues with a distinctly moustachioed theme! Every day throughout November, The John Rylands Library is sharing images from our collections to inspire and motivate all those taking part in Movember 2014.

From the full and thick to the perfectly trimmed, we’ll be sharing moustaches on Instagram and Twitter. Keep an eye out for famous moustaches of World War I poet Wilfred Owen, William Shakespeare and even a bearded lady!

You can also get involved by visiting the Library and taking a selfie with our statues of John and Enriqueta Rylands, who will be wearing moustaches for the month.

Follow us today @TheJohnRylands and search #jrlphotoaday.

Movember is a leading global organisation committed to changing the face of men’s health. You can find out more about the charity on the Movember website.

The photo a day campaign supporting Movember will run from 1 - 30 November.
