The Texas Library Association is now offering its 2010 calendar, showcasing "the charms and often concealed art of 21 women of the Texas library community".
Proceeds go to the TLA's Disaster Relief Fund, providing support to communities and libraries along the Gulf Coast still recovering from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
Tattooed or not, librarian are BAD. ASS.
The Tattooed Ladies represent both urban and rural libraries; public, school, academic, and special libraries; and the state's geography from El Paso to the Gulf Coast and from North Texas to the Rio Grande Valley. You'll meet seasoned professionals and passionate lay advocates, retired librarians and library school students. Libraries thrive on and promote diversity and freedom of expression. The Tattooed Ladies of TLA calendar is a testament to both.
