The Wichita Stamp Club is a non-profit club made up of philatelists furthering the enjoyment of their hobby, sharing their interests with others and learning about the numerous fields in stamp collecting.

Membership is open to everyone interested in stamp collecting.


Location: Alford Branch Library 3447 Meridian, Wichita

Visitors are always welcome at stamp club meetings!

Meetings vary in July and December; please check our program schedule for specific dates and places.

Meetings start with a brief discussion of club business. Afterward, a formal program is presented-- a talk, film, slide program or demonstration. Programs range over a wide variety of subjects, covering U.S. stamps, postal history, foreign stamps, postcards, topical collections and "how to get started."

In addition, club auctions and bid boards are regularly scheduled, allowing members to sell and buy stamps, tools, covers, books and other philatelic items.

Before meetings, members gather early to buy from circulating sales books, to trade, or just to talk about stamp collecting.

The Stamp Club generally meets at 6:00 p.m. on the first and third Thursdays of each month.
