Libraries in North London
|| For reading, reference
or a quiet place to write, libraries in North London are
multifunctional information centres available for everyone
Most local libraries in the area will have access to millions
of books, if not on the premises then at one of the many
centres across the area.
However books are not the only resource supplied by local
libraries – tapes, CDs, DVDs and access to the Internet
are all available from most libraries, while some also
organise special coffee mornings, ‘Rhyme Time’
and other activities for under 5’s as well as reading
groups and one off events.
Anyone can access a local library for reference only purposes,
however if you want to take items away with you, you will
need to be a member. Membership is usually restricted
to residents of the area but is free.
As well as subject information, local libraries are also
great for information about the local area including tourist
information and events happening in the community.
In Islington you’ll find a dedicated Local
History Centre where historians and others interested
in the past life of the area can find books and exhibitions
on the history of the area.
