National Stamp Collecting Month

National Stamp Collecting Month starts tomorrow so here's something you or your club can do to celebrate - donate a book or two on stamp collecting to your local library!

The Glendale/LaCrescenta (California) Stamp Club did just that and got some nice publicity. Shown here is a picture that ran in their local newspaper, the Glendale News-Press.

Most libraries these days are strapped for cash and would no doubt be happy to get such an in-kind donation. You could also donate a subscription to Linn's. American Philatelic Society Chapters can have their subscription to the The American Philatelist send to a library of their choice.

Check with the librarian to see what they might need or want. The Encyclopedia of United States Stamps and Stamp Collecting (Rodney A. Juell & Steven J. Rod, editors)  and/or Janet Klug's Guide to Stamp Collecting are two excellent choices.

Shown in the picture from left to right, club President Don Schilling, La Crescenta Librarian Marta Wiggins, and club members Harvey Hirsch and Bob Thompson.
