One of the most celebrated numismatic literature events of recent decades was the 1988 "Invasion of Louisville", where bibliophiles descended upon
the library of Armand Champa of Louisville, KY. At the upcoming 2019 American Numismatic Association World's Fair of Money in Rosemont, IL there
will be another such memorable event - a visit to the numismatic library of Dan Hamelberg in Champaign, IL. NBS Vice president Len Augsburger
provided this announcement. -Editor

The Numismatic Bibliomania Society will "invade" Champaign for a tour of the Dan Hamelberg library on Sunday, August 18. For NBS members attending
the ANA Convention, transportation will be provided, leaving Rosemont at 9AM on August 18. It will be about a 2.5 hour drive, more details will be
provided as we get closer. If you wish to attend, simply send an email to Len Augsburger (firstname.lastname@example.org) indicating your intention
to do so. If you will NOT be using NBS-provided transportation, please also note that.
Rumors surrounding the depth and breadth of the Hamelberg library have been circulating for years - here is your change to investigate first hand!
Finally, if there is a particular item from the Hamelberg library you wish to see, do note that, and we will do our best to accommodate your request,
as it may be easier to locate an item in advance of the tour.
