AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - So much for the stereotype. Texas librarians are baring their skin and revealing their tattoos - all to raise disaster relief money to help damaged libraries.
Photos of the librarians and their body art appear in a new calendar sold by the Texas Library Association. Librarian Shawne Miksa says it's a way to get people to notice library issues. As the model for November 2010, she shows off Chinese characters on her lower back that mean "wisdom" and "desire."
