This selection is titled: Books, Reading and Libraries. Literacy rates are one of the quickest ways to determine how developed a nation is. A nation that places a high value on reading and knowledge is a prosperous one. America has throughout it's history placed a high priority on schooling and the written word. Libraries are a favorite place to go to study, learn and have access to computers and the internet. As the 4¢ stamp says in this selection, "A public that reads..A root of Democracy".

You get the following stamps:

5 20¢ A Nation of Readers stamp with Abraham Lincoln reading to his son Scott# 2105
