Texas Librarians Show Off Wild Side With Calendar

Women of the Texas Library Association are showing some skin — at least the parts they've tattooed — in a calendar for 2010. Proceeds from sales of the calendar, called the "Tattooed Ladies of TLA," will help pay for repairs to libraries damaged by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

Good morning. I'm Linda Wertheimer.

If you think of librarians as prim and proper, think again. There's a calendar for 2010. Women of the Texas Library Association are showing some skin - at least the parts they've tattooed. Body art and a good cause - proceeds from sales of the calendar, called the Tattooed Ladies of TLA, will help pay for repairs to libraries damaged by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

It's MORNING EDITION.
