Librarian Paula James got her inspiration from the movie "Calendar Girls" in which some elderly women posed nude to raise money for a woman whose husband had died. Although the movie was hilarious, James knew her fellow librarians wouldn't go the nude route. But they were determined to give the public a vision of librarians without their trademark glasses hanging off their noses or their "stuffy looks".
Now the librarians of Iowa's Dallas County have put it all together and plan to sell the calendar to make money...for their libraries. Their first printing was a scant 300 copies; Paula James figured "we could (always)sell them to family members." Here's the story, but sorry, no pics were available.
