A visit to the Collectors Club of Chicago library

Collectors Club of Chicago Cabeen HouseWhile I was in Chicago for a library conference earlier this month, I visited the Collectors Club of Chicago’s Cabeen House and was treated to a tour of the library by CCC librarian Ed Waterous.

The Cabeen House is a beautiful old brownstone, and the library collection is housed in every available space from the fourth floor to the basement. Ed and other volunteers stay busy cataloging material and maintaining order on the shelves.

We recently loaded 2,615 book records from the CCC library into the Philatelic Union Catalog, so you can search their holdings along with the rest of the union catalog member libraries.
