The Rhode Island Philatelic Society
The oldest philatelic society in the United States
Established February 2, 1885
The RI Philatelic Society maintains and active and impressive library of philatelic reference works, covering many aspects of general philately as well as deep insight into specific stamp issues. The library also contains a significant number of hard to find reference works on the postal history of many states. The library now has over 250+ volumes in our care. More volumes are added each year, particularly any new works suggested by the membership!
Traditionally the content of the library stacks has been maintained using paper records. We've recently moved to using an online free library service known as LibraryThing! The link(s) below will bring you to the site where you can view our ever changing catalog listing!
