MEN ON A MISSION MORMON CALENDAR 390x TALL (COURTESY) ADVOCATE.COM Between the Stacks 

Yes, most librarians are white women, and apparently tens of
thousands of them are going to reach age 65 in the next five years. These
aren’t those librarians. The 2012 Men of the Stacks calendar features sexy male librarians from around
the country, all hoping to change
that stereotype. Von, the sexy Mr. June from Toronto, told Filipino Librarian, “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 in movies, books and, yes, blogs.” Apparently
calendars too. Even better, all the proceeds from the calendar go to the It
Gets Better Project. ($16, MagCloud.com)
