ANA NBS MEETING  

   The general meeting of the Numismatic Bibliomania Society 
   was held at 6:30 PM Friday, August 13th.  About 40 people 
   attended.    Nawana Britenriker, ANA Librarian, reported on 
   the ANA Oral History Project &  book preservation work at 
   the library.  Audible gasps were heard when she reported that 
   $600 had been spent on restoring a copy of A.M. Smith's 
   Visitors Guide to the U.S. Mint.  The funds had been donated 
   by the Women In Numismatics (WIN) group and were 
   earmarked for this specific volume, which had seen much use 
   and abuse over the years.  

   Dr. Ute Wartenberg, ANS Executive Director, gave us a virtual 
   tour of the new ANS Headquarters and Library Facilities, which 
   should give their library 30 years' worth of expansion room.  

   Finally, John Burns recounted some stories of visits to the 
   numismatic libraries of Armand Champa, Frank Katen, and 
   others, including the infamous five-pound meatball prank 
   played on John by Armand (see the Money Tree's "Out on 
   A Limb" for the full story and picture).
