All Islington's libraries are free to join and have free public computers, Wi-Fi and internet access

Following the announcement of a national lockdown all libraries will be closed until further notice.

Covid cases are higher than ever and we are acting to keep Library users and staff safe and to reduce the risk of spreading the virus to friends and families.

There will be no fines for items you have on loan that become overdue.

You can borrow eBooks, eAudiobooks, online newspapers, magazines, comics and other resources for free on our library, arts and heritage webpages. 

You can join Islington libraries online or email

You can still enjoy our new free, fun family online rhyme and story times for under 5s. Book your ticket with Eventbrite.
