Librarians Who Love Ink

If you’re still holding on to the idea of librarians being meek little old ladies with thick libr 1glasses and frayed buns pinned to the back of their heads, then, you, friend, clearly haven’t visited a library lately.

We love this post from THP that discusses the very cool things the The Rhode Island Library Association (RILA) is doing to dispel those silly librarian stereotypes:

(RILA)is challenging people to check their preconceived library notions at the door. RILA’s fall fundraising plans include the launch of the first ever Tattooed Librarians of the Ocean State 2014 calendar, which features twelve librarians and library workers representing the many working professionals who are proud of their career, their ink, and the stories they tell.

As the state chapter of the national American Library Association, RILA is a nonprofit professional organization that works to promotes the profession of librarianship, engages in activities that raise awareness of twenty first century library services to the public, and advocates for funding and support of libraries throughout Rhode Island.

Check out a few of these inked up’d librarians below. For the full post, check out THP’s original post.
