Library

The Federation’s library and the Bennie Illman philatelic library are housed in the philatelic centre of the Sandton Public Library, Nelson Mandela Square, Sandton. Access is during library hours. Certain valuable items are separately and securely held and only available from the librarian on request.
    All the Federation and Illman items are in the reference section, so no items are available on loan.
