Celebrating Tucson’s 242nd Birthday!

The drawings of fifteen children, five from each age group, were selected from nearly one-hundred entries as the top designs of our tenth-annual Tucson Birthday Stamp Design Contest.

The top five winners from three age groups were given awards and prizes today at the ceremony. Every student was given a Bookmans gift certificate (donated by Bookmans), collectible stamps, and other prizes that were selected to match each child’s interests.

In addition, two designs from each age group were selected and printed as collectible art work on envelopes (“cachets”). Visit our main contest page to see the cachets and learn how to purchase them (proceeds to benefit our Youth Education Thru Stamps (YES) program.

The top fifteen winners will be on exhibit at the Postal History Foundation until the 2018 Awards ceremony next year. Thanks to all who entered, and congratulations to our top fifteen designers!

What’s all the buzz about?

The Slusser Library  joins in  the celebration of the USPS’s August 3, 2017 stamp issue, “Protect the Pollinators” with an exhibit featuring philatelic bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, bats, and moths.

Pollinators are responsible for one-third of our food and drink and $20 BILLION (with a BEE) in products annually in the United States.

We hope you’ll be able to visit us and see the Pollinator exhibit (through Fall 2017).

We also invite you to play our Pollinators quiz!
