The Rhode Island Library Association presented their Tattooed Librarians of the Ocean State 2014 calendar (that’s now sold out).
“Libraries are unique as they simultaneously foster the preservation of histories and traditions, while fighting censorship and fostering cutting-edge learning environments. Likewise, tattoos can also represent the preservation of history and resistance of the norm. The twelve librarians and library workers featured in this calendar represent just a few of the many working professionals who are proud of their career, their ink, and the stories they tell.”

quienesesachica: This gorgeous woman is my mom.
The little baby is my big brother.
She passed away last Sunday.
I miss her like crazy. She taught me to love books, she read to me every night when I was little. She had such a tender love for books that each one has flowers or notes in them.
I love you, mi güeris.
