Here at the International English Library, our first love is books but we offer much more. In addition to being a haven for book lovers, we hope to offer a space where people from all backgrounds and languages can come together and build community.


Whether you are an English native speaker looking for a wide variety of books and films, a non-native speaker interested in reading in English, or someone looking to practice their English with coursebooks and easy readers, we want you to find what you are looking for at our library.


If you are looking for more than books and films, our events such as featured talks, art exhibitions, children’s story time, book clubs and games afternoons bring people together and offer a chance for those with diverse backgrounds to find common ground in their shared interests.


We see our library as much more than a place for books. We offer space to build community, make new friends and share interests. Our library was established in 1946 with the aim to bridge cultures, which continues to be one of our objectives today.
