How to Collect Stamps Coming Soon to the Hollins Library in Roanoke.
Each Wednesday in February two of our club members, Emery St Cyr and Dan Perkins, will be conducting an educational stamp program at the Hollins Library, 6624 Peters Creek Road, in Roanoke. During the one hour program which begins at 4:00 p.m. each Wednesday, attendees will learn about the hobby of stamp collecting and how to collect postage stamps. Anyone interested in learning about the Hobby of Kings and how to begin stamp collecting are invited to attend. BLSC members are encouraged to attend.

The time is now to plan your one-page exhibit for entry in the American Topical Association’s third annual My One-Page Exhibit Program. Last day to submit exhibit is February 15, 2023.
A one-page exhibit presents a story illustrated by stamps and other materials in a single 8.5” x 11” page or – new this year -- an 11” x 17” page. Previous exhibits have shared stories of historic events, scientific discovery, personal pastimes and more.
Exhibiting in the My One-Page Exhibit Program is free and open to all. ATA membership is not required. All exhibitors will receive an ATA certificate commemorating their participation.
The exhibit program grows each year, and ATA is hoping to break its own record of more than 230 entries submitted in 2022 from 14 countries on subjects in 13 categories.
Details and exhibit guidelines will be posted on the ATA website (www.americantopical.org) soon.
