Islington Education Library Service (IELS) is a subscription service, which has been serving schools for over 27 years. We have over 330,000 books, 190,000 artefacts and 7,500 costumes, plus maps, posters, DVDs and a collection of historical newspapers.
Most schools pay for an annual subscription but it is possible to pay-per-box or hire costumes for school productions or special events. We also loan to film and theatre companies. Please contact us for costs and options for borrowing.
IELS is based at Islington Central Library approximately 5 minutes walk from Highbury and Islington Station on the Victoria Line/London Overground or Holloway Road Station on the Piccadilly Line.
