World Beard Day will be on 6th of September this year.
Beard owners and appreciators on every continent are encouraged to celebrate.
Why not invite a few bearded friends over to binge-watch our most hirsute dvd Vikings Season 1 ... or play your favourite sport with Bearded vs Non-Bearded teams (with the beardless team heavily handicapped).
The official website http://worldbeardday.com/ has more suggestions if you want to organise your own World Beard Day event.
Make sure you check out the display of specially bearded books in the Library this week.
