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 $25, which gives you borrowing privileges at the Library and entitles you to participate at planning meetings.

The library now has 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 now fully unpacked and ready to help you with your philatelic research or any general questions that you have about stamp collecting.

Library Operating Hours:

As of May 1st, 2017 the Library is open from 10:00am to 2:00pm Monday through Saturday. Sometimes due to conflicting events (shows etc) this schedule might change so please check the Events Calendar for up to date details.
