For many years the Society has maintained a small library of books, many of which are not easily obtained elsewhere. However, with the ever increasing availability of information through the internet, and the escalating cost of postage, the number of books borrowed from the library has dropped to almost zero.

 Therefore, I can announce today that the books in our library will shortly be incorporated into the library of the Royal Philatelic Society of London (RPSL).

 Members of the Italy and Colonies Study Circle (ICSC) are welcome to consult any book in the RPSL library (not just those donated by the ICSC) at their premises in London. Members who are also members of the RPSL may also borrow books from the library.

 The RPSL address is:- 15 Abchurch Lane, London EC4N 7BW, UK and more details of their services and membership can be found in their website:-
