Our mission is to strengthen and support stamp clubs in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and the Dakotas; to promote philately; and to support and enhance the Northern Philatelic Library.  Annual dues are only $20, which gives you borrowing privileges at the Library and entitles you to participate at planning meetings.

The library will have a new home:

On July 1st, 2016 the Northern Philatelic Library took possession of a property that will become the permanent home of our collection of philatelic books, periodicals and auction catalogs.

Northern Philatelic Library (1)

The property is located at 1110 Lowry Ave N, Minneapolis. It is a solid construction as you can see in the picture and will have enough room to house our collection and to conduct meetings, seminars, bourses etc.  We are currently in the process of refurbishing the building to meet our needs and are busy packing up the collection to be moved.  We plan to be out of our current site by the end of September.

Coming Events:

The annual general meeting of the Northern Philatelic Library will be held at the Minnesota Stamp Expo on Saturday July 16th, 2016.  The agenda will include the election of officers for the next year and a general discussion about the new library premises.  Come along and take the opportunity to find out more about the new library building.

Directions to the Library:

We are currently located at 426 South Wabasha St, Suite B, St. Paul MN, which is in the basement of the building.  Access is from the carpark at the back of the building, right across the road from the Boca Chica Restaurant.  Come around the back, and there we are!
