Research Library

The Society’s primary purpose, and the reason it came into being, was to support, promote, and fund the Northern Philatelic Library.   The reason there are two organizations is primarily for tax reasons.  The Society, as a non-profit corporation, can be fairly loose in it’s organization, and has little burden of regulation or reporting.  The Library, as a tax exempt non-profit organization, must follow much more stringent rules to satisfy the Internal Revenue Service.  To mazimize the freedom of the Society, the Library accepts donations, so that the Society treasury remains small.

The boards of directors are the same people, the board meetings are combined and simultaneous.  Please explore the website for more details about our operations and services.

The Library is located at :

1110 Lowry Ave N,
Minneapolis, MN 55411
