The library was founded in 1944 through the acquisition of Nils Strandell’s philatelic library of 15,000 volumes. Today the collections consist of more than 60 000 books and journals.
The library is constantly growing through acquisitions and donations of literature on philately and postal history from all parts of the world. A major part consists of older periodicals and the library subscribes to journals from all over the world. You can access the collections through the webb catalogue and the national database Libris. The databases are constantly expanding.
