Icelanders are known for reading, writing and publishing more books per capita than any other country. So, it is no surprise that the ICCT has a treasured lending library. Many of these books in the collection have been donated by members or purchased through the generosity of member donations.
Our ICCT Library is located in the Scandinavian Club building on Stormont avenue (one block south of Lawrence, runs east off Bathurst) If you are looking for something specific and can’t find it ⋅⋅⋅ do not despair ⋅⋅come on out to an ICCT event or contact the ICCT Librarian, Margaret Björgvinsdóttir, e-mail: email@example.com for more information.
Please also note that donations of books or funds to assist the library are always welcome.
