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 is now 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 has enough room to house our collection and to conduct meetings, seminars, bourses etc.  The building has been extensively refurbished by Paul Henpel and Rudi Anders and their talented crew. We are currently in the final stages of unpacking all the boxes of books etc. and getting the library ready for normal operation.

Coming Events:

Library functions are cancelled for the month of September.
