The Slusser Memorial Philatelic Library contains a collection of over 30,000 books, journals, catalogs, photos, maps, and other reference items related to philately and postal history. Our archival collections focus on the postal history of Arizona and the Southwestern United States. The library also houses a collection of Civil War literature and material, and hosts the montly meeting of the Tucson Civil War Roundtable.

Dedicated in October 1996, the library is adjacent to the Postal History Foundation in the unique West University Historic Neighborhood District. Its aesthetic appeal and architectural features have received national distinction. It features a spacious reading room, exhibit area, book, and catalog sections. Most importantly, it has become one of the most recognized repositories of philatelic literature in the United States. Its material is an excellent resource for students, educators, historians and researchers. A trip to the Slusser Library is guaranteed to be worthwhile. We look forward to your visit!
