Central Branch - Wichita Public Library

Meetings vary in July and December; please check our program schedule for specific dates and places.
Meetings start with a brief discussion of club business. Afterward, a formal program is presented-- a talk, film, slide program or demonstration. Programs range over a wide variety of subjects, covering U.S. stamps, postal history, foreign stamps, postcards, topical collections and "how to get started."
In addition, club auctions and bid boards are regularly scheduled, allowing members to sell and buy stamps, tools, covers, books and other philatelic items.
Before meetings, members gather early to buy from circulating sales books, to trade, or just to talk about stamp collecting.
