Penn State students help out on MLK Day

Volunteers unpack boxes

Three Penn State students, volunteering their time as part of Penn State’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service, helped out at the American Philatelic Research Library today.

On Friday, we received three pallets of journals and auction catalogs de-accessioned by Library and Archives Canada. They were temporarily staged in the Morse Building at the American Philatelic Center, the former home of the APRL until the opening of the new library last year.

Thanks to our volunteers, hundreds of volumes are now ready for processing

The students helped by opening boxes, putting the journals and catalogs on carts, in order, and moving them upstairs to compact shelving in the new library, where they await processing to become part of the APRL’s collection.
