A Red Sox Hall-of-Famer and award-winning authors are stripped and posing naked for a charity agenda to save their local library from closure.

The stars have a page from the The calendar girls' book, beating a series of challenging poses, protecting their modesty with chainsaws, newspapers and leaves.

It is all hoping to raise money for the Varnum Memorial Library, a small facility in the US state of Vermont that serves around 5,000 people in three cities.

Library administrator Karen Smith said: & # 39; Most libraries nowadays have to raise money in addition to what their municipality offers.

& # 39; Many programs have speaker costs, many libraries offer snacks and supplies for children's programs and computers need to be maintained and upgraded.

& # 39; There are no costs associated with using, participating or borrowing funds from a free library, so additional fundraising and the search for legacies and donations is part of ensuring our sustainability. & # 39;

Mrs. Smith said they had included the calendar, hoping to reach beyond the village of Jeffersonville, where the library is located.

She said: & # 39; While brainstorming about the project, someone suggested & # 39; What if we asked the Vermont authors … because we are a library? & # 39;

& # 39; Everyone in the brainstorming session was immediately enthusiastic and we thought we had nothing to lose by contacting us to see if they would support us in this way. & # 39;

They soon found many authors wanted to help.

& # 39; Those who could not wish us well, and some offered to help the library in different ways, & # 39; said Mrs. Smith, 56.

& # 39; Of those who did participate, many were immediately enthusiastic.

& # 39; Some participated because they believed in libraries and wanted to support us, and some even surprised themselves when they said yes. & # 39;

Photographer Catherine Aranda Learned traveled to all but one of the 13 participants and created a calendar that not only celebrates the beauty of human form, but also the great outdoors.

& # 39; We hope that, in addition to raising much-needed funds for the library, today it will also raise awareness of libraries & # 39 ;, said Smith.

& # 39; For those who have not visited their local library for a while, they may be surprised that they offer more than traditional paper books.

& # 39; There are fascinating and fun programs for all ages, free use of computer and wifi, language lessons, e-books to download, and some libraries lend items such as musical instruments or tools.

& # 39; They are a place where everyone is welcomed and equal, and they are often a vibrant hub of their community. & # 39;

Copies of the calendar are $ 20 and can be purchased online at the library.
