Hobby library opened on World Book Day

Kanna English Medium School students participating in World Book and Copyright Day in Guntur on Friday.

GUNTUR: In a fitting gesture to celebrate the World Book and Copyright Day, the Guntur Numismatic and Philately Society in association with Kanna English Medium School, Railpeta, opened a ‘hobby library' on Friday with an initial collection of 300 informative books pertaining to several hobbies.

Involving school students from the Kanna English Medium School, where the Library has been houses, and students from other schools, who were members of this club, they propose to allow children to have access to some of the world's finest journals on philately, numismatics and book reading.

The Society members donated a number of world catalogues that are beyond the reach of ordinary stamp or coin collector at student level. These books allow the enthusiasts to ascertain their collection was genuine and also gather additional information so that they could develop thematic collections for competitions at district and State level.

After the school director Kanna Master formally declared the library open, former head of Department of Telugu at Acharya Nagarjuna University S. Gangappa, a well-known numismatist and Telugu/Sanskrit reader of AC College N. Kishore Babu and writer, Abhyudaya Rachayuthala Sangham State president Penugonda Lakshminarayana spoke.

A good book was like a good friend, which could enlighten us in many aspects and help us reach our goal by showing the right path and gave the examples of Maxim Gorky's Amma and Mahatma Gandhi's several books, which had helped people tread in right direction worldwide. The books not only provide us with knowledge from world over, they also build our personality, he opined.

The Fresh Green Stamp from Finland

For Environmentally Sound Mail


It is easy to choose a more environmentally sound for sending mail. As part of the Itella Green program, the 'Posti Vihrea – Gron Post' stamp will be introduced; deliveries with the stamp are carbon-neutral. The environment has been observed in all manufacturing phases of the stamp.

Being the first in the world to do so, the stamp will be manufactured for Itella of 100% recyclable OBA-free paper material. No bleach or brightening substances will be used in it. No wax or shine substances have been added on the surface. The fresh green tone comes from a water-solvent print color which does not strain the environment.

The designers, Timo Berry and Teemu Ollikainen have prepared a post-horn in the first class stamp. The other end of the horn puts out green seed leaves. The stamp carries an extra fee of EUR 5 cents. The assets accrued from the fees will be allocated to support the construction of the first solar power plant in Finland.
