Reader's Exchange: Have collection, need stamp books

Can anyone help Lily of Clearwater pass on a wonderful hobby to her great-grandchildren? She spent years saving stamps and placing them in the proper stamp books, both foreign and U.S. Unfortunately, they disappeared during a relocation from Spring Hill to Clearwater. Lily has spent time working with four of her great-grandchildren, and they have boxes of stamps, categorized and waiting for books to be placed on proper pages with corresponding information. Lily says she is not in the position to buy new stamp books and wonders if someone has some old, unused stamp books sitting in their closet that they would be willing to donate. The great-grandchildren are siblings and would be happy to share one book of each type, she says. Lily is able to pick up the books. She can be reached at (727) 712-8671.
