Librarian Tosses Outdated Book on Stamp Collecting

A stamp collecting book are among many titles being removed from the East Grand Rapids Middle School Library according to the Michigan Live website.

The book (shown here) has a girl on the cover wearing a bib skirt and "Marcia Brady hair."

East Grand Rapids Middle School librarian and teacher Harry Coffill is quoted in the article as saying, "No middle school girl is going to pick that up."

If you would like to send Mr. Coffill a newer book on stamp collecting, like I intend to do, his address is

Harry Coffill
Grand Rapids Middle School
2425 Lake Drive, SE
Grand Rapids, MI 49506
