So much for the stereotype of the stuffy, prim-and-proper librarian: A playful pack of Texas librarians is showing a wild side.

Eighteen women who spend their work hours amid books and researchers took time out to bare their skin and reveal to the world their tattoos - all to raise disaster relief money to help damaged libraries.

Photographs of the women and their body art appear on the pages
of a new calendar sold by the Texas Library Association.

Some of the women gathered Wednesday for the release of the
calendar.

The "Tattooed Ladies of TLA" calendar is a follow-up to the successful "Men of Texas Libraries" calendar, which raised $9,000 to help libraries damaged by hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
