I’ll Take One Of These Please

Men of the Stacks

Zak here (or should I say Mr. January?) is one of the male library professionals featured in the “Men of the Stacks” 2012 calendar. In case your were wondering, Zak is 6′ 5″, volunteers as an EMT, plays rugby, and loves to ride his bike. So yeah, he’s pretty much a unicorn. Zak and other hot bookish fellows are becoming pinups to raise awareness. As Von, Mr. June, puts it, “We can’t just leave it to others to tell the people who we are; that’s why the stereotypes about librarians continue to flourish.  We have to be the ones to go out there and tell people who we are. It’s not enough to complain about inaccurate images of librarians; we must be able to present alternative, positive images,” he said. These images are making me feel positive alright. If you’re not drooling already, you will be when I tell you that they are donating all proceeds from the calendar to the “It Gets Better Project.” Sold! Now I just have to figure out where to hang them. [Flavorwire]
