The Librarians at the Outagamie Waupaca Library System wanted to come up with a "different kind of gift" for Craig Lahm, who is retiring after 32 years of running the place. Twelve of them decided they would use photographs of themselves to make a simple calendar that they would print at a Walgreens. But after the librarians took their idea to Countryside Photographers in Seymour, they decided to professionally produce a calendar and sell it as a fund-raiser.
That's when six of the 12 librarians bailed out. But five middle-aged library directors and a 32-year-old assistant each put up $200 and posed provocatively, using oversize books to cover what their clothes usually do.
Me thinks Craig has been doing a fine job if his employees want to strip to say good bye.
