Sexy Male Librarian Pinups Posing For a Good Cause

Not all librarians wear tightly coiled hair buns and fondle the card catalog like it’s going out of style (wait … ). Library professionals come in all flavors, and the Men of the Stacks project is aiming to change your preconceived notions. They’ve made a classy cheesecake calendar with 12 tasty librarians, because “there is an entire population of professional librarians out there who disagree with the way the library profession is perceived in contemporary media outlets and in the historical consciousness of the American mind.” All proceeds from calendar sales are being donated to the It Gets Better Project, which was created to show ” … young LGBT people the levels of happiness, potential, and positivity their lives will reach — if they can just get through their teen years.” Please take a moment to indulge in a little eye candy, which supports a very serious and positive message, below.

“Sol stands even taller knowing this calendar will raise funds for the It Gets Better Project. So if you’re reading this, stop by your nearby public library and know librarians have your back.”

“It’s not enough to complain about inaccurate images of librarians; we must be  able to present alternative, positive images in movies, books and, yes, blogs.”
