Juvenile books available at the APRL

The following books belong to the APS Education Department and are now available for use in the APRL. Because the books do not belong to the APRL, we can’t loan them out, but many of these books are available in public libraries and bookstores. We hope that this list gives you some reading ideas for the young philatelists in your life. The titles range from picture books to young adult books.
