Islington Local History Centre is closed to the public between Monday 3 August and Saturday 15 August 2015 (inclusive). This is due to the sorting and preparation of a large quantity (75% of holdings) of our archive collection being placed into medium-term, external storage due to building work taking place at Finsbury Library.
It is anticipated that items placed into storage will be unavailable for a period of up to 12 months. Appointments to visit the Centre will be available as from week commencing 17 August 2015 for remaining material. Staff are happy to advise more fully as to what remaining areas of the collection will available for consultation. We will endeavour to monitor telephone messages and emails at the start and end of each day. Another closure period (September/October) will be announced later to cover building work taking place at Finsbury Library.
